Why hire people with nonprofit experience?

If someone has a background working for a nonprofit - what have you learned about them? Is the common conception - people with nonprofit experience tend to care more about social good, and less about the bottomline - of any merit? What organizations at what point in the developments should put a lot of weight on potential hires with nonprofit experience? How does nonprofit experience translate to cause marketing? Does nonprofit experience even matter? Why Hire People with Nonprofit Experience?
tynamite's avatar From what I understand, non-profits still have to pay tax and they may pay their employees a wage. But with the primary focus being to help society rather than to take extract money from it, it places ethics above profits.

Personally I have work experience working in a nursery, neurosurgery ward, and jobs magazine. My mum is a counsellor who works for a non-profit charity.

What I find, is that people who have non-profit experience have vocational hands-on experience with the task at hand, and that they are more dedicated with their work, as they don't care so much about the money.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
