Idealist Review

I've used Idealist as a job seeker and as an employer and highly recommend for any nonprofit professional.


Idealist is one of the best site for job listings in the nonprofit sector. It's the go-to job board nonprofit employers and employees.


I don't have a ton of complaints. Sometimes creativity is needed when searching job terms, but all in all it's a straightforward and helpful platform.
