When you’re trying to get your first job in the nonprofit sector, the process can be a bit intimidating. On Idealist alone, there are over 80,000 nonprofit organizations, all focusing on something different, from working with veterans to preserving wetlands.

If you’re searching for an entry-level job but aren’t sure what type of nonprofit you’d like to work at, browsing what’s available can give you a good sense of what’s out there. Just perform a basic search for jobs in your area, then narrow down the search by selecting “Entry Level” as your professional level. Here are a few great positions to get you started.

  • AmeriCorps is a great way to start a career in the nonprofit sector, and there are plenty of positions open, including this one in Kansas.

  • In Chicago, if you have some teaching or school-based experience you may be a good candidate for this Network Associate opening posted by the Achievement Network. Farther north on Lake Michigan, check out this Enrichment Center Coordinator job in Milwaukee.
