Six months ago I was hired as a full-time employee at a small non-profit to be the director a project funded by a grant. This is my first job in my dream industry and really helped me get my foot in the door in the non-profit world (something that is actually very difficult to do).
This week I learned that in 18 months — when the project ends — I will be let go. There are no if's, and's, or but's. In 18 months, I am out.
I have no hard feelings about my impending job loss, while nobody during the interview process explicitly mentioned it was a 24 month position, I was aware that this might be the case. It is/was a great job and it is/was a great experience. But now I need to look for the future a bit.
I have 1.5 years until my unemployment, so my question is this: What I should do now to prepare?
