Your Personal Profile
The more information you can share with our nonprofit community the more you're putting a face behind the skills you're offering (literally!). Don't forget to upload a profile photo and feel free to share links to other online resources such as LinkedIn or your own website.
Your Professional Experience
Don't forget to also show off your professional accomplishments and credentials. The easiest way to do this is importing information from your LinkedIn profile. If you want, you can also upload your experience manually by clicking on the Add Experience button.
