Andrew Watt, president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, says the high turnover rate among people who solicit money at charities is the result of short-term thinking.
Data suggest that fundraisers swap jobs every two years or so, in part because they are lured by better salaries and titles. But Mr. Watt says it takes more time in a job to master the skills that fundraisers need. In an interview with The Chronicle, Mr. Watt urges fundraisers to take the long view on their careers.
