Young People Urged Not to Give Up on Nonprofit Careers

The economic crisis is shaking up the nonprofit world in ways that are making it more difficult for young workers to find jobs but could also present them with new and unusual opportunities to advance, said speakers and participants at a conference that wrapped up on Saturday.

“Business as usual is out,” said Diana Aviv, president of Independent Sector. “You may have thought that long before the economic crisis, but now you’ll have a lot of executives who will be interested in the kinds of solutions you have in mind. This is the time for creativity and innovation.”
