Looking for a job can be exhausting and discouraging. It was refreshing to meet with a recruiter from Careers In Nonprofits and finally feel supported in searching for work opportunities. Everyone who has ever called me from CNP with job opportunities has been friendly. I’m thankful for Johannah, the Temporary Division Recruiting Coordinator, who has been my main point of contact since the very first call I ever received from CNP. It is beneficial to be in constant communication with one person. CNP has continuously made me feel like they have my best interest in mind.

My placement this past month and a half has been with a university student health initiative. I’ve enjoyed being on their beautiful campus and traveling to different locations for the campaign. Interacting with students, staff, and my team has made the job enjoyable. I’ve been able to hone in on my administration and leadership skills through my time on assignment while also working in a non-stressful environment.

I’m thankful for the opportunities Careers In Nonprofits has provided me and am looking forward to my next assignment.
