Did you ever wish someone had taught you in high school how to interview, apply for jobs, and succeed in your first 90 days of a job? Like, was that trigonometry class really so much more important than this?
I, like most of you, fell into fundraising. When I started working full time at nonprofits, there were HUGE gaps in my knowledge. Ever heard the saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know?”
Well, we all don’t know what we don’t know. I made tons of mistakes in my first few years in the nonprofit field. Mistakes that I cringe to think about now. And I want to keep you from making the mistakes I made.
Would you like to learn more about what you truly want to do in fundraising, learn how to write a better cover letter and resume, interview strong, and become truly irresistible to nonprofit employers?
I decided to create this e-course called Get Your Dream Job to help you, the fundraising professional, succeed in every aspect of your job search and in your first 90 days in a new job.
In this brand-new 4 week e-course, I’ve got the answers for you. You’ll learn how to make a better resume. A kick-ass cover letter. How to interview strong and follow up stronger. On top of that, I’ll teach you how to show metrics even in the first 90 days, when your metrics can’t be dollars raised. I can help you communicate better with your boss. And I can help you create some early wins so that you win the trust of your leadership and can continue to achieve in your job.
On top of all that I will spend 30 minutes with you going over your resume and cover letter and talking about how we can improve it, together.
Why should you trust me?
I’ve been in fundraising over ten years. Started out as a fundraising intern. Worked my way up in various nonprofits as a development assistant, development associate, development officer, and development director.
Since I started my business in 2009, I’ve helped people get some pretty awesome jobs in nonprofits, government, and the private sector. And many people I helped are still at the jobs I got them, years ago.
I’ve also run successful career fairs, and interviewed people in different nonprofit roles about how they got their jobs.
Now I write books about fundraising and help people learn how to fundraise more effectively for their nonprofits.
Why would you want support in your job search and first few months on the job?
Because times are hard. People are competing for fewer and fewer jobs. And competent fundraisers are hard to find. Once you get in, there may have been no one in that position for six months or more!
Here’s a not-so fun fact: Most fundraising staff stay only 12-18 months in a job. Your nonprofit leadership and colleagues may be wary that you will leave quickly too. It’s a cycle that erodes trust. You need to be able to find your dream job, and then get in and start kicking butt, quickly!
All of that turnover means it’s much harder for you to succeed on the job, if you don’t have records of what has been done, and your donors haven’t been asked or cultivated in some time. This means that you have to work extra hard, often alone.
I am here to help, to be your invisible mentor and friend, feeding you the answers in the interview, giving you a leg up in the proving ground of your first 90 days. With this course, you will get email access to me for the duration of the course, as well as the bonuses listed below.
This 4 week course is a truly endless resource, for fundraisers old and new
Plus, if you’re looking to continue to move on up in fundraising, having a primer that you can go back to again and again when you get stuck will allow you to succeed in this job, and go on to specialize in the type of fundraising that you like in the next job.
This 4 week e-course is all about how you can succeed in landing your dream job!

What is an E-course?
An e-course is written material, sent to you every week, in a printable format. It will also include a recorded webinar. We created this format so that you can go at your own pace, and fit the e-course into your busy schedule.
When you buy this product, you will be placed on an email list that will email you the product, one week at a time. You will not be placed on any other list, and once the course is over you will get no further emails from us.
Is it live?
One person asked, is it a live webinar that I’ll need to login to attend? It is not a live webinar. Because of everyone’s busy schedules, we are making this e-course of written material, plus a recorded webinar, so that you can learn this information exactly when it is convenient for you.
How long will the course take me to complete?
The course will take roughly 2 hours a week. There’s also a recorded webinar in the last week that may take a little more time.
Will there be any opportunities to ask questions?
Absolutely! You can email me unlimited emails for the duration of the course.
Will there be practice exercises to complete?
Yes, there will be practice exercises to complete. I include worksheets and templates in all of my webinars and e-courses. I believe that if you apply your learning instantly, then it sticks!
Is there a money-back guarantee?
YES! If you are not satisfied for any reason, I offer a 30 day money-back guarantee.
What if you’re not looking for a job right now?
Odds are, you’ll be looking in the next 18 months. Even if you end up moving to another job at some point, you can start creating a reputation as someone who knows how to fundraise well. This e-course could help you get a higher-paying job, based on your reputation as someone who can get things done. Your enhanced reputation could add up to thousands of dollars for you, over the next couple of years.
Wouldn’t you want to not only put your best foot forward in this job, but invest in something that could enhance your reputation and lead to a much higher paycheck down the line?
Get a leg up with your career with this new e-course!

People who have read her book say:
“I loved your book, Get the Job! In fact, it has helped me get two job offers and negotiate a raise since I bought it. Your book helped me write excellent cover letters and resumes and ask the right questions during interviews. I decided the first offer wasn’t the best fit and turned it down, but am very excited to start my new job soon. I will be re-reading the chapters on setting realistic expectations at my new job, which is part of a start up foundation for a university here in the UK (hard to believe there are still universities out there not in the fundraising game).
This week I am celebrating a quick win I had writing to current regular givers asking them to increase their monthly donations. The response so far has been phenomenal, and I now have a very sore wrist from handwriting so many thank you notes. Thanks for writing such a helpful book and an inspirational blog!” -Stephanie Miller
I just ordered your book Get the Job. Five minutes after placing the order the phone rang and I was called to come in for an interview with an organization that would be a wonderful next step in my career. That is what I call fast results! -Julie
Started reading your book last night and have already changed my LinkedIn profile following your advice. It’s a very valuable piece of writing. Thank you for putting your experience and wisdom on paper for others to share. –John Godfrey, CFRE, Advisor, Mentor and Trainer to Fundraisers at Artful Training, Sydney, Australia
