Herald Bulletin-Nonprofits pay off with jobs

Herald Bulletin: "Nonprofits pay off with jobs

Looking for a steady job? Pick up an application at your nearest nonprofit office.

In Indiana, the number of jobs at universities, hospitals and social services are growing, and they tend to weather economic hardship better than for-profit or government work, an Indiana University study found.

Released this month, the findings said nonprofit employment grew more than 5 percent between 2000 and 2003, outstripping government jobs, which grew by almost 3 percent, and leaving for-profit employment, which fell almost 6 percent, in the dust. The I.U. School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the Center on Philanthropy at I.U. conducted the study."
