Are you interested in the nonprofit sector? Do you have a long range vision for your career? Are you thinking about starting a job search?

Michelle Pagano Heck and Todd Owens, Principals and Founders of Nonprofit Talent, will share their experience and insights gained from years of nonprofit leadership, reading thousands of resumes, counseling thousands of individuals, and supporting hundreds of nonprofit organizations in executing their leadership hiring strategy.

Participants will benefit from topics including:
• What organizations seek in hiring a leader
• What to include (and exclude) in your professional resume
• Common pit-falls of a job interview
• Deciding your best path to personal and organizational leadership
