General, our group put these three parts in the identical order of significance that we do, which is nice!
However we do see some fascinating variations based mostly on how lengthy they’ve been working within the area.
Not surprisingly, those that picked “Study Your Job” as their first precedence tended to have three or fewer years within the work. However we additionally noticed a massive bump in these with 11-15 years within the work saying it was the best choice too. I think that’s as a result of while you attain that time in your profession, you might be extra conscious of “realizing what you don’t know” and you might be extra taken with filling in a few of the gaps and making an attempt to maintain up with all the brand new issues (and there are a number of new issues on a regular basis on this work).
Those that picked “Love Your Work” because the best choice? Most of them have been working in nonprofit communications for 1-6 years. Once more, this is smart to me. They’re comparatively early of their nonprofit comms careers and making an attempt to resolve whether or not this work is true for them long-term. We attempt very laborious to encourage proficient communicators to remain within the sector, even when the monetary rewards aren’t so fabulous.
Those that chosen “Lead Your Group” as their best choice have been extra evenly distributed throughout the entire expertise ranges, which confirms that you simply don’t want a long time of expertise to be thought of for team-leading roles.
