9. Broad Skill Sets Appreciated:

8. Ownership and Autonomy:

You love that once you have an idea and you are given the green light to run with it. In a nonprofit job, you can have full ownership over your project from start to finish, usually without a manager checking up on you every five minutes.

7. Every Day is a Surprise:

There is never a normal day in the nonprofit world. One day you may be helping out with a fundraising event and the next you may be writing a grant or designing a website. With so much to do, everyday is different and you love the unexpected so it’s a perfect fit!
