Beef Up Your Résumé: Volunteer

Beef Up Your Résumé: Volunteer

Debra Ann Matthews, a career retention specialist and professional résumé writer in Clarksville, Tenn., says it’s important to demonstrate how you made a difference. Portray the connections between the volunteer work and the open position.

For instance, Matthews says many students participate in required community service events as a part of their sorority and fraternity social goals, while others take church-based spring break trips to help serve communities after catastrophes. Whatever the volunteer activity, connect the dots for your potential employer.
“Companies are looking for people who have participated in activities that demonstrate their ability, based on past performance, to handle the job…they are pursuing,” Matthews adds.
Volunteering can help develop project management skills, sales skills, marketing experience, or the task of managing a team. A history of volunteering also suggests that you’re a team player, a quality many employers look for in potential hires.
Once you complete a task, describe your involvement based on the success of your participation.
Here’s an example of Matthews’ résumé demonstrating how to showcase volunteer experience. See article for more details. http://moneymix.cuna.org/29902/article.php?doc_id=4501

4 Reasons to roll out the red carpet and hire a vet

I once heard a quote by George Patton that speaks about the core belief system of Americans and that is our quest for excellence. We expect to be excellence and that is the primary reason why we in our U.S. Armed Forces have never lost a war. With that mindset, we all know that you as a military veteran, now civilian administrator will strive for and exceed all standards.
