Chapter 1 —Job hunt tools …

Page 13: How embarrassing! In the sidebar titled “Resources for careers with non–profits,” we skillfully misspelled the address of our own web site. We left out the letter “n” in http://jobfindersonline.com. Also, the book Making a Living While Making a Difference has gone out of print. You may be able to find it in a library; if you’re lucky, a bookstore; or from one of these two companies that find out of print books for you: Book Depot (located in Florida), 800/438–2750, or Book Look (located in New York), 800/233–0540, or and online at http://www.abebooks.com. It was a darned good book.

Jobs and Careers with Nonprofit Organizations is available in an all–new second edition for $17.95. We have only a few copies left after which the book will go out of print. Check the “Job Quest Catalog” part of our web site for the section on “Non–Profits” where you will find a few new books that should be helpful.
