Hiring for advancement right now is as challenging as it’s ever been — and that’s not going to change anytime soon.

Advancement leaders who find success in hiring will need to be creative, and that includes placing increased emphasis on a nontraditional pool of candidates: individuals with transferable skills from other fields. These professionals can be exceptional colleagues once they’re up and running, and KDD Philanthropy is here to help you take that leap!

KDD Philanthropy is proud to be a partner to advancement shops as you grow your teams. We offer coaching that brings new advancement professionals from novice to skilled practitioner. Our transferable-hire coaching program provides:
