Non-profits exist in a position between the public and private sector and often operate through funding provided by a combination of the public and private sectors. Non-profit positions can be found in any field: science, education, medicine, law and public policy, business or engineering.
Technical skills will vary based upon the specific field, but certain “soft skills” are applicable across an array of occupations. Here is a list of some basic soft skills that can help pave the way to landing a job in the public sector:
- Communication in all forms
- Non-technical analysis and research
- Leadership skills
- Time management
- Adaptability to multicultural/multilingual environment
- The ability to multitask
- Being a solutions provider
- Team player
Though your qualification for a position will largely depend on your level of education, most entry level positions will require at least a bachelor’s degree.
