Recent research completed by LinkedIn shows that CNPs are seven times (7x!) more likely to rise to director+ level than their non-CNP peers. And they are passionate about their work. In fact, CNPs stay employed in the nonprofit sector 50% longer than those who are on similar career paths, but did not complete a CNP program.
Due to the unique combination of classroom training, practical experience and leadership activities, CNPs get hired and rise more quickly in their organizations. Plus, CNPs have access to Alliance Career Services, which provide a critical link between talented professionals interested in careers in the nonprofit sector and employers interested in hiring passionate and prepared employees.
