The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent opportunities for jobs in advocacy, grant-making, and civic organizations as a result of retirements and turnover due to low wages. Public awareness of social and political issues, plus the persistence of traditional social problems should maintain demand for nonprofit workers. In addition, the number of nonprofits has been rising steadily and each new group creates new job opportunities. According to the findings of the 2015 Nonprofit Employment Trends Survey, a survey conducted by the group Nonprofit HR Solutions, 50 percent of nonprofits anticipate creating new positions. Nonprofits are continuing to rebound from the recession. Year after year these organizations continue to increase staff size. They're introducing new initiatives and realize that their staff is at capacity. To prevent employee burnout, they're hiring new staff to handle the new programs. In addition, more nonprofits are using social media—LinkedIn and Facebook, in particular—as recruitment tools. The nonprofit fields that anticipate the greatest increase in job opportunities are health, environment and animals, and faith-based organizations.
