Economic Stress on the Non-Profits
By David Scott
As 2009 draws to a close, the vital need for career services is still at extreme levels, with economic challenges hitting both the career development practitioner and the client. Undoubtedly some services and resources declined but hopefully new ideas in response to the challenge arose. Was your agency or service lucky to achieve success with a new endeavor? Did your program miraculously survive due to special effort? What new idea can you share with other practitioners that might make 2010 a better year for all?
