Free Nonprofit Webinar: How to Move Up in Your Fundraising Career by Building Your Personal Brand (Recording)

With a competitive and tight job market looming, now is the time to position yourself and your personal brand for moving up in your fundraising career.

Years ago, your resume was the only summary that existed about you and you had absolute control over it. You could add or omit as needed, portraying the exact picture that you want potential employers to see.

While your resume is still critically important to getting you an interview, today there is a new resume in town – Google. 

Nowadays, virtually all recruiters look at your social media….and more than 57% have rejected applicants on the basis of what they have found..  44% of the time, employers will offer someone a job because they liked what they found about the applicant on Google. A 2018 Harris Poll for Career Building found that about 47% of employers indicated that if they can’t find a social media presence for someone, they won’t bring them in for an interview.

Like it or not, today, the internet rules over resumes.
