What professionals in this field say?
About 56% of the people who answered our PayScale.com survey said that their careers at non-profits were satisfying or very satisfying.
Common Majors: Business and Liberal Arts
Personality Fit for Non-Profits: Natural leaders with a strong sense of empathy, a passion for helping others, and unlimited perseverance in the face of setbacks will be successful in the field.
Non-Profit Career Trajectory: The career path for non-profit work can vary wildly—some organizations barely hire at the entry level and others are looking for lots of help from recent college graduates. Getting a sense of the size and scope of the non-profit organization that interests you can better help you figure out whether have a chance of getting hired full time, or whether you'll need to start as a volunteer or intern.
Getting Started: Some entry-level non-profit titles include program assistant or development assistant. In those roles, you'd be helping higher-ups to plan events, raise money and track donations, or coordinate outreach efforts. At other organizations, you'll be leading groups of volunteers from the get-go; at Boy Scouts of America, where director of diversity and executive recruitment Carolyn Altemus hired 400 entry level employees last year to run operations at the organization's 247 local offices, entry level recruits receive three to six months of training and are then charged with managing an entire local volunteer corps. "We teach you, basically, how to run a business," she says.
Get on the Fast Track: The most important thing you can do to rise in the ranks of a non-profit is to display willingness to be a team player and be eager to help out at both complicated and mundane tasks, "even if it's just pulling tables and arranging a conference room a certain way," says Lucy Dettl, the recruiting manager for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a Dallas, Texas-based organization dedicated to education about and treatment for breast cancer.
Next Up: After a few years of strong performance, you might end up managing other employees or directing projects on your own, depending on the structure and size of the organization. For example, at an organization with an international or policy focus, you might be a senior associate or project manager for a particular region or policy focus, directing other associates and spearheading fundraising, writing memos, or planning events.
Phase Three: As you gain more management experience, you might become a director of a department, such as development or policy, or even the head of an entire non-profit organization. You'd likely deal more extensively with the macro issues faced by your organization and its direction as a whole, and could also serve as its spokesperson in media coverage.
Non-profits are increasingly looking for employees who have the business savvy to maximize profits and cut losses so they can remain sustainable, so you may want to consider an M.B.A. with a focus on corporate social responsibility or non-profit management. That would equip you to work as a strategist for a micro-finance organization and eventually as a director of business development or a chief financial officer.
Some programs, like those at Stanford's Graduate School of Business and University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business, will forgive part or all of students' tuition loans if they commit to post-graduate work in the public service or non-profit sectors.
Alternatively, with a master's degree in public policy, you could become an organization's director of public policy, and eventually move up to becoming a vice president or president. But consider whether you need the business or policy skills—especially if you have a liberal arts background—for the degrees and decide whether full-time or part-time study is best.
