    Hi! I am trying quite hard to find a good nonprofit job in marketing or development, but I feel that I am at the same time both over and under qualified for most jobs because I hold a JD and BBA in marketing, but have less than 2 full years of experience with paid nonprofit work. I’ve been told outright I am a ‘flight risk’ because of my education. Despite being extremely frustrated with employers being immediately suspect of my genuine desire to work for a purposeful organization (because I’m probably ‘just waiting for something better to come along’), I do not regret my educational decisions. Rather, I just want to give up on trying to explain it to those who don’t really understand what a JD really is. Should I consider a master’s in nonprofit management? I love learning and always want to master my craft, but I don’t want to waste time and resources if experience (which no one will give me) is the only thing that will help me.
