Maybe my experience isn't relevant to the current generation, but I chose to spend the first five years of my career in the non-profit sector because I saw that while the pay was poor, the opportunity to take on responsibility and gain meaningful management experience was much greater than I ever could have hoped for in an entry level for-profit position. I had every intention of leaving the non-profit sector once I had built up my resume, and I did - the strategy worked very well for me. And now, in my 50's, I'm back as a leader of a non-profit, again working for less but happy to put the skills I gained in the for-profit sector to work for the cause.
