Nonprofit Sector

Industry Outlook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent opportunities for jobs in advocacy, grant-making, and civic organizations as a result of the increasing number of older adults who will need social and community services. There will also be job growth in the nonprofit sector due to retirements and turnover due to low wages. Public awareness of social and political issues, plus the persistence of traditional social problems should maintain demand for nonprofit workers. In addition, the number of nonprofits has been rising steadily and each new group creates new job opportunities. To prevent employee burnout, many nonprofits will continue to hire new staff to handle new initiatives and programs. In addition, more nonprofits are using social media—LinkedIn and Facebook, in particular—as recruitment tools. The nonprofit fields that anticipate the greatest increase in job opportunities are health, environment and animals, and faith-based organizations.
