Employment in America’s non-profit organizations continues to gain ground on other major industries in recent years according to a report issued by  Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies. Based on projects from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, the report “Nonprofits: America’s Third Largest Workforce,” reveals that as of 2015, America’s non-profit workforce ranks third in size about the 18 major U.S. industries, behind only retail trade and manufacturing. Learn more about the non-profit industry and what it has to offer career-wise.  Connect with representatives from several non-profit organizations that will be attending.
