Tips for Working in the Nonprofit Sector

What I learned on my first day of work for a nonprofit organization.

1. Slow down. This is not a corporation, you are working to help people.

2. Volunteers keep the organization alive. Keep them happy and you will be happy.

3. Work together, ask questions and stay positive.

4. Take a deep breath. Remember you are working for a cause.

5. Not every idea will make it past the cutting room floor, but one will.

Overall, be prepared for difficult days and always keep the cause in mind.

You are helping.
