Nonprofit Career Advice

“For many people a job is more than an income – it’s an important part of who we are. So a career transition of any sort is one of the most unsettling experiences you can face in your life.”      — Paul Clitheroe

Nonprofit Executive Search Consultant. I have the opportunity to leverage over 13 years’ experience as a executive recruiter with a NYC based search consulting firm that serves the nonprofit sector.  I have reviewed thousands of resumes, interviewed hundreds of candidates, and worked with dozens of Boards of Directors in the executive search process. I have a keen understanding of candidate selection and development, and what it is that nonprofit employers are seeking in recruiting senior leaders. I’ve developed a strong track-record of success in helping prospective candidates to gain clarity in their job search so they can position themselves most favorably in their career transition.

“In great teams conflict becomes productive. The free flow of conflicting ideas is critical for creative thinking, for discovering new solutions no one individual would have come to on his own.”   —-Peter Senge
