Review


“Packed with useful information that can help you become an effective agent of social change and environmental healing…”
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne Reader and EarthCouncils.org

“This practical handbook is a treasure trove of information and an indispensable guide for any job seeker exploring opportunities in the nonprofit sector. Written by experienced career experts in an approachable and straightforward format, this book is a must read for anyone who wants to get to work at making the world a better place.”
—James Weinberg Founder & CEO, Commongood Careers


“Insight into the nonprofit sector, professional career advice, and clear definitions of the industry jargon—all in one well-written beautifully presented package! I endorse this book for anyone (of any age) considering a new or different way of doing meaningful work.”
—Beth Olson Associate Director, Columbia University Center for Career Education


“A comprehensive guide to everything one needs to know about the nonprofit sector brilliantly combined with a straight talk primer about how to conduct a successful 21st century job search. It is an invaluable tool for career changers at any age or life stage seeking meaningful work in a sector known more for making a difference than making a profit.”
—Linda Wiener Aging and Workforce Consultant, Age Issues Expert for Monster.com

“If your goal is to change your life’s work to a career that’s more meaningful, The Idealist Sector Switcher guide is the perfect tool to help you make the transition.”
—Lisa Napoli Journalist and Author, Three Good Thing

Excellent resource for anyone who is unfamiliar with the nonprofit sector! Very comprehensive with the right information sources and resources. It has been a true asset for someone like myself who is in the process of switching from the pubic to the nonprofit sector (Sector Switchers). I highly recommend!

I am really pleased by this book as it is an easy step-by-step guide to reaching your professional goals by finding the right job for you. It simplifies all that's related to nonprofits and really gives a good idea of what work could be in these organisations. It is my new Bible ;-)
