Steps into the nonprofit workplace

Looking for work in the nonprofit field, but want to try out the organization first, then volunteer. Volunteering gives you a chance to see if the organization is really doing good, and it gives the organization a chance to see if you'll be a good fit in its family.

Volunteering is also a good way to show your strong work habits when inbetween jobs.

There are a number of websites that collect Volunteer listings. Here are a few of the biggies: Idealist.org, Volunteer Match, Network for Good, and Points of Light.

Of course, you don't need to be looking for a job to volunteer.
