Building The Career of Your Dreams
Even in 2020!

We’re in a new world for nonprofit leadership and fundraising. Is your head spinning? Have you lost your job? Or do you want to make a change, need to revisit your career plan or want to make sure your plan is still relevant—and need some expert advice? This is the session for you.

We are thrilled to have Victoria Silverman, founder and CEO of Cook Silverman Search. They are the leading search firm for nonprofit positions. How do you work with or approach a search firm? What qualities will make you stand out as a candidate – in the resume review stage and the interviews. When do you bring in a search firm for your organization? Who’s getting hired today? What are the skills and qualities you should be building to stay relevant and successful in non-profit leadership? Bring your questions, your strengths and your weaknesses. We’re going to focus on building your career and organization.
