After you have set up your Job Seeker account, you can add your profile (under the "Resume" tab, click on "View Resume" and fill out your Candidate Details). You can add the entire text of your resume here if you prefer. You can also upload your resume (and a photo if you wish) from your computer. In the blue bar under the "Resume" tab, click on "Edit Resume." About halfway down the page, click on "Browse" under "Upload Resume." This will allow you to browse and select the file you wish to upload from your computer.
If you don't want to set up a Job Seeker account, you can still apply for jobs, as long as there is contact information listed on the job ad.
Lumity requires job posts on NPO.net to be for a real position, although the position may not start for some time after the posting or be contingent on a grant award or some other external factor. However, from time to time there might be a posting that is not connected to a real job opportunity in the social service / nonprofit sector. Please report these jobs to npoHelp@lumity.org. If the job is found to be bogus, Lumity staff will remove the post from the site.
You can choose to keep your name and identifying information private. When you complete your profile, look for a check box near the top of the form to hide your identity from all employers / agencies. Employers can ask to contact you and you will receive an email. Your identity is not provided until you say it’s OK.
Yes. Most employers prefer to manage their applications through NPO.net, and can require applicants to apply only online. However, some employers require job seekers to apply by email, fax, regular mail, or on their own website. If there is no "Apply online" button on the job ad, make sure you read the ad to find out how the employer wants to receive applications.
Many employers require applicants to apply through NPO.net. If you see a blue "Apply Now" button on a job ad, you will need to create a free Job Seeker account. It only takes a few minutes, and you will be able to save your applications, save your job searches, and create your own profile in your account. You can also upload your resume, which will be automatically sent to the employer when you apply for a job.
Make sure you fill in the blank box that asks you to respond to the job qualifications of the job you are applying for. If you would prefer not to write a letter in this field, you must add something to that field, even if it just says "Please see attached cover letter and materials."
After you have selected the region you wish to search, you will see that all jobs within that region are listed by category. This allows you to visually scan what types of jobs are available and where they are located. You can also type in a keyword or conduct an “Advanced Search.” Look for the link under “Find Jobs” on the top left of the window.
NPO.net helps job seekers to find non-profit jobs in Illinois, NW Indiana, SE Wisconsin, Texas, and many other states. We recently added a special section for Texas nonprofit job openings.
All job postings are active for 30 days, but can be "expired" or pulled at any time by employers. You can save jobs to your user account or email copies of the job to yourself for future reference. However, if an employer removes a job before its expiration date, that job will disappear from your saved jobs section. Most hiring agencies maintain an online profile with contact information so you can always call or email the hiring agency regarding the job opportunity.
