Connext Webinar - How to F.U.N.D. Your Nonprofit Career
Where am I going and how will I get there? What's next? Do I have to leave my job: "move on to move up?" Who is responsible for my professional development? In this workshop, career paths and development throughout the nonprofit sector will be discussed, including positions as fundraisers, program managers, and funders and supporting fields.
Katie will talk about how to "F.U.N.D." your career path by examining your Financial goals, Unique strengths, Network building and Development planning through "bootstrapping" your professional development and planning your own growth. You will leave with a Professional Development Plan for a career in philanthropy that is actionable and ready to execute.
