Posting a job in the Indianapolis Not-for-profit News
Why advertise a job position in the Not-for-profit News?
We use the Indy NFP News/job board with the candidate-screening questions feature for all of our postings. It’s the best way to reach experienced, nonprofit candidates!
Jeanie A. Andes, director of human resources
Central Indiana Community Foundation
With a post in the NFP News, you can reach an audience of nonprofit leaders, volunteers and students. NFP News’ online job board attracts thousands of nonprofit professionals working in Central Indiana and others outside the area who wish to relocate.
Beyond the 14,000 weekly subscribers, many readers forward job postings to friends and colleagues or refer individuals to the online job board.
Our unlimited word count allows a job posting to include both information about the nonprofit and the open position.

Save time with candidate-screening questions
Screening questions can save time. Our system can include candidate-screening questions as part of the resume submission process. This allows the employer to receive resumes and candidate responses simultaneously. From our experience, candidates who cannot answer the screening questions are less likely to apply. With these questions, you can learn more about each candidate and receive a relevant sample of his or her writing skills.
Sample questions for a variety of positions can be found here. You can select from these or provide your own. We recommend at least four, but not more than seven to strike a balance between gathering pertinent information, while not discouraging qualified candidates. If you are including candidate-screening questions, the deadline for your job posting is 5 p.m. the previous Friday in order to be published in the upcoming Tuesday newsletter.
Write a compelling job posting
We have learned that just describing the job’s responsibilities and minimum qualifications is not enough to attract outstanding candidates. When writing a job ad try to put yourself in the job seeker’s shoes and think about what would motivate him or her to leave a current position. It is important to include reasons why a candidate should be excited about joining your nonprofit’s team, share information about an organization’s impact and delineate how an applicant can play a role in that important work.
To utilize the full capabilities of our job-board database, we suggest you use the following format:
- * Name AND email of person collecting applications – OR – Weblink to your job listing online or application site
- * Job Title, Organization Name, Full Time or Part-time
- Two sentence organization/position introduction that appears in the NFP News with a link to the full length description
- Organization Overview or Description
- Position Duties
- Position Qualifications
- Resumes will be accepted through what date, if shorter than our 30 day standard? (Month/Date)
- Salary and benefits, if desired
