Does Your Career Really Need a CFRE?

November 8, 2019 | 9:00-10:00AM
Zoom Online Conference Call

If you are in the 2019 Mentor Program as a Fellow or as a Mentor, you are especially invited to join this online clinic using Zoom video conference. For this clinic focused on the CFRE and career opportunities, current chapter members are also invited to attend.

"Achieving Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) status," according to Jim Armstrong, a CFRE from 1982 through 2019, "isn't as essential as breathing but it can really help you standout in a crowd of job candidates."

"We certainly recognize the value of a CFRE," says executive search consultant Victoria Silverman of Cook Silverman Search, "along with other skills and qualifications we consider when evaluating candidates for our clients."

Victoria and Jim are the Mentor Program co-chairs who will lead this final session in the 2019 program's series of online clinics. They will discuss the career value of the CFRE and provide helpful tools to demonstrate fundraising skills and experiences and how one adheres to the profession's ethical standards.

The two leaders will also answer your career questions and provide practical career tips whether you are looking to advance in your current organization or are ready to explore opportunities elsewhere.
