“Ask the Experts” Informational Interviews are designed to connect students seeking the Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential with nonprofit “experts” who have been working in the sector. The objective is to answer students’ questions about various career opportunities, different nonprofit and philanthropic jobs and the necessary skills to build a successful career.
Students will meet with professionals and have the opportunity to learn about various experiences in their given field of expertise. Students will ask questions about the professional’s company or organization and the different roles they have encountered in their career. Students will be looking for advice and information about subjects ranging from interviewing skills, to specific details about certain job positions, to the impact an organization’s mission will have on their work.
Format: One-on-one conversations with students (15 minutes per student).
