Arlington, VA – The Council on Foundations has launched an enhanced Web-based career center that connects job seekers with prospective employers in the philanthropic sector. The new job board, powered by career services leader JobTarget, can be found at www.cof.org/jobs. Access is available to Council members and nonmembers alike.
“We are proud to offer a new service that helps the world’s greatest foundations and non profits recruit top talent who wish to advance their careers in this sector,” said Steve Gunderson, president and CEO, Council on Foundations. “Our new online career center underscores the Council’s commitment to professional development, assisting our members with their talent management and acquisition needs, and connecting and cultivating philanthropic leaders.”
The Council’s career center, like other JobTarget-powered sites, distinguishes itself from generalist job boards in a number of ways. These include:
The new career center offers tools that help employers enhance their candidate recruitment. In addition to allowing companies to post a profile and browse the anonymous resumes free of charge, the career center automatically sends an e-mail to qualified job seekers when an employer posts a position that meets their search criteria. The new career center rates are below the industry standard for posting jobs. Council on Foundations members can post a position for 60 days for $149. Nonmembers can post a job for $299.
The Council on Foundations (www.cof.org), formed in 1949, is a nonprofit membership association of grantmaking foundations and corporations. Members of the Council include more than 1,750 independent, operating, community, public, and company-sponsored foundations, and corporate giving programs in the United States and abroad. The Council’s mission is to provide the opportunity, leadership, and tools needed by philanthropic organizations to expand, enhance, and sustain their ability to advance the common good.
