The best candidates know what they want—from and for—themselves. Nonprofit employers can sense when you are looking for a job versus looking to make a difference. Share your story and demonstrate how you can deliver impact.

Ask candid questions.
Rather, ask direct questions—what are the goals, obstacles and results required—so you understand the real job at hand. Focus on the success factors that a company needs, and demonstrate how your initiative and experience fits into the larger picture.

Conduct your own performance review.
Ask the interviewer if they have any concerns about your qualifications. This allows any lingering concerns to be immediately addressed and, gives you an opportunity to demonstrate how you handle challenging conversations.
