There is much more. The Survey delves into hiring trends including critical data and relevant charts related to specific positions including management & fundraising, finance, public relations & marketing, programs & education, and IT & database management.

“Nonprofit administrators can use the Survey results to budget and remain competitive in 2010 and 2011.
