Nonprofit Squad Goals is a regular series of challenges to help you tackle your professional development goals in small, bite-sized pieces throughout the year. We’ll offer advice and give you a platform to network with other young nonprofit professionals who have committed to making 2016 the best year yet for their careers. You can join the challenge and share your journey by using the hashtag #npsquadgoals.

In our 2015 Young Nonprofit Professional survey, an overwhelming 86% of you told us you plan to stay in the nonprofit sector long term. Luckily, Boston is home to a variety of incredible organizations looking for bright, talented young professionals — just like you! But how can you attract your next employer’s attention, whether you’re in the midst of a serious job hunt, or just starting to think about future options? We dare you to take action by joining our fifth challenge of the year: Jumpstart Your Next Job Search!

Job search pros will tell you the best way to find a job has a lot to do with being proactive and making sure you’re keeping your  resources up-to-date and informed every step of the way. That LinkedIn profile that’s been created but gathering dust ever since?

Ditto for past references, friends and acquaintances in your network.
