Plan is an incredible non-profit helping children and their families in the developing world.
Pros: travel, one-on-one meetings with corporate donors
Cons: naturally company politics
My typical day at Plan consisted of contacting corporate donors, receiving calls and emails from current and prospective corporate donors, creating collateral materials for various donors to promote Plan to their guests/customers and reporting on budget and revenue to upper management on a monthly basis.
Working to help children is and was a very rewarding part of my job at Plan and I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to many of our country sites with high level donors.
This position enable me to strenghten my interpersonal skills along with my oral and written communication skills. I actually got over my fear of public speaking.
