Why Working At a Nonprofit Might Just Be a Really Smart Thing To Do

I was very much on the Women in Business fast-track. I worked in finance for two summers during college, and my senior fall, I applied and was accepted to business school. In the months prior to my graduation from college, however, to everyone’s surprise and some people’s horror, I deferred business school for two years and signed up to work at a nonprofit in the Bronx.

Meet Craig Teal

Craig Teal, fresh from college, landed a job as a Development Administrative Assistant at one of my favorite foundations.

A lot of Gilder Lehrman’s work is done via the internet, and as such I think their online giving […]
