I was at the conference last week and realized Cancer and Careers is a great resouce.
To try to make a long story short, I find myself here looking for a job in non profit. I am an experienced database professional but I am not being considered for jobs because I don't have experience with their software. I have been trying to volunteer to get experience. I am doing other volunteering and loving it. Have been trying to pursue freelance work and will work in temp positions until I can find the right job. My networking has been great, just nothing yet.
Do you have any suggestions on other things I could do? I know I need to update my resume too. Do I focus on my recent volunteering along with the database management experience?
