The advantages and challenges of a career in philanthropy
The range of jobs at an organization and some general day-to-day responsibilities
The structure and possible priorities of foundations you may encounter on your job search
A realistic picture of the competencies corporate and private foundations may value in potential new hires and the number of jobs available in the field at a given time
