Our "On the Move" series highlights members of our YNPN Boston Leadership Team who have recently transitioned into new jobs. Hilary Ippolito, a YNPN Boston Ambassador, shares her reflections on her recent job search.
I wasn't always a young nonprofit professional. For close to a decade, I was a graduate student, part of a broader community of academics and researchers.
