A few weeks ago we featured an article by Trista Harris on how to build your nonprofit network. We also wanted to interview her as part of our book preview series that showcases intriguing leadership and nonprofit texts and their authors. Her book, coauthored with Rosetta Thurman, is aptly titled How to Become a Nonprofit Rockstar. It focuses on how to accelerate your nonprofit career and find your dream nonprofit job. She delves deeper into her wealth of helpful suggestions in this interview. Listen to her interview here.
Here’s a taste of the interview:
In our book, it has all the sort of things they don’t teach you when you’re in school about nonprofits: how to brand yourself, how to develop a career path, how to network and how to really strengthen your career. Rosetta and I decided to write the book because it was all the advice we wish we had when we first started our jobs. It feels like sometimes in nonprofits you don’t have that clear career path that you sometimes have in the for-profit sector. It feels like there are secrets on how to move forward and what it takes to be successful. We just wanted those things to be really clear so that people both stayed in the sector and really thrived when they were there.
