Nonprofit organizations have specific needs when it comes to understanding board governance, fund-raising and grant writing, and HR concerns when the 'workforce' is made up of a large number of volunteers. Traditional business knowledge and approaches do apply but less traditional skills are highly desired by this sector. Ideally new hires will not only have a foundation in public policy, media and public relations and fiscal management, but they will also have the skills to aid in program building and evaluation, and strategic planning. These business skills are needed to manage the various facets of nonprofit organizations.
