From the Publisher
King guides you step-by-step through the often difficult transition from the business world to starting a career in nonprofits. His book really helps (this isn't hype) people ranging from recent college graduates to CEOs to understand how the nonprofit sector works (discover how nonprofit leaders think and hire -- it's a whole different mind set than in the business world), how to leverage "strategic volunteerism" into a key job with a nonprofit, and how to radically change your business resume into one that gets you hired even though you have no experience in nonprofits. Use King's "Nonprofit Preference Index" to identify the type of nonprofit at which you'll flourish. Learn how switching to a nonprofit -- or just starting your career with a nonprofit -- does not necessarily mean making a tremendous sacrifice in salary.
