Continuing a successful formula and the format of his two recent works, The Government Job Finder (LJ 2/1/92) and Professional's Job Finder ( LJ 3/1/92), Lauber again has created an invaluable, affordable compendium of resources. His reference steers the job hunter beyond the local classifieds to specialized periodicals, job services, hotlines, directories, and salary surveys with subscription and background data supplied. Organized alphabetically into 30 broad occupational categories, The Non-Profits' Job Finder includes fields such as public interest groups, advocacy, social services, research, and foundations. Similar to The Job Hunter's Sourcebook ( LJ 3/1/91) in content and format, this work, in contrast, provides an in-depth focus on the nonprofit sector lacking in that book. Following the main text are an alphabetical state-by-state listing of job and grant sources and, as in Lauber's other manuals, two chapters detailing guidelines for cover letter and resume writing and interview preparation.
