Students graduating from college, recently retired people, and many people who want to change their careers. When entering the world of the nonprofit career you should consider looking for a job that you are passionate about and knowledgeable in all aspects. For example, if you care about the environment, poverty, or feeding the poor countries of the world, then go for that path and you should follow that desire in your heart.

Once you have selected a nonprofit organization, you might want to first volunteer to see what resources they have and if you will fit in the organization.

From writing newsletters to direct mail campaign and even producing small magazines, your writing skills would be beneficial to the company.
