Hi Beth--thanks for the link love. :-) A few months ago I asked readers about their advice for people who want to start a career in the nonprofit world and got some great info and feedback that I wrote up in a post:

Hey Beth, thanks for passing along this info.

The single most valuable experience for me was my first job out of college--which began with an intense organizer training (and was later followed by actual, door-to-door organizing). State PIRGS, ACORN, labor unions and other organizations offer incredible training opportunities to the right candidates.

The principles deployed in organizing--whether it be online, in a workplace or in your neighborhood--transcend technology. It's about people. Whenever I'm faced with a challenging task online, I always turn to the lessons I learned in the field. What excites people, what engages them, and what ultimately empowers them to lead in the movement.
