A new year always offers opportunities for a fresh start. For those wrestling with career challenges, it can be a chance to reflect, reboot, and reinvent. The Chronicle offers nonprofit workers a lot of help with all of these goals.

A core piece of advice from our experts: Career building is all about relationships. Cultivate your professional networks. Don’t just seek a mentor, but become one too. "We need the best and brightest in our sector now more than ever, and that means we all need to be noticing and developing talent around us," says Asha Curran, chief innovation officer at the 92nd Street Y.
