    Thanks for sharing your insight! I love how your blog is more focused on listening rather than reading. I have experience in working for a non-profit org and let me tell you, it was very rewarding but it came to a point wherein I needed to look for a profession that provides a more financially-comfortable lifestyle and in line to what I studied back in college. I do still see myself working for one again in the future. again, thank you for the tips!

    Working in non-profit is really good because it gives you happiness which you wont get working for other organizations. I’m sure everyone would want to work for at-least a year or 2 in non-profit organizations.
