Internship and Job Center

The Alliance provides a critical link between talented professionals interested in careers in the nonprofit sector and employers interested in hiring passionate and prepared employees. One important way we do this is through CNP Launch, talent management solutions that connect current students and Certified Nonprofit Professionals (CNPs) to job and internship openings at our national nonprofit workforce partners and local nonprofit members.

Reggie’s thoughts on the CNP credential:
“The CNP credential has helped place me on a career path in nonprofit leadership. I have almost instant credibility during a job search when I mention or describe the credential.”

On CNP Launch:
“It is especially important to have CNP Launch for a job search because it connects you to potential employers who understand the credential’s value. I used CNP Launch as I was looking for new career advancement opportunities and I intend to utilize it to post job and internship opportunities for Alliance students and CNPs at my current organization. It is a great resource!”
