Idealist Graduate Degree Fairs Coming to A City Near You!

Many Conscious Consumers evaluate whether they are spending the majority of their time in line with their values, doing something they love. In light of that fact, we are sharing the following, courtesy of Meg Busse at Idealist:

If you are thinking of going back to graduate school, checkout our Idealist Graduate Degree Fairs at

At each of these fairs, you will meet representatives from 60 to 120 of the leading nonprofit-related graduate programs in the country, representing degrees ranging from MPAs and MBAs through Law, Social Work, International Relations, Urban Planning, and many more.

This fall we will be in:

New York, September 10
Boston, September 15
Toronto, September 18
Washington, DC, September 19
Philadelphia, September 22
San Francisco, September 30
Los Angeles, October1
Portland, October 4

Vancouver, October 10
Chicago, October 20
Ann Arbor, October 21

For more information, to register (it's free!), and to see a list of the schools attending each fair, just go to and click on your city.

And if you want to get a sense of who you'll meet at these fairs, and
why you should attend, watch this two-minute video.

The second reason I am writing is to invite you to take a look at two free books that can help you or other people you know find a nonprofit job.

The Idealist Guide to Nonprofit Careers for First-time Job Seekers and
The Idealist Guide to Nonprofit Careers for Sector Switchers are both
available to download for free.

Happy Searching!
