Do you have expertise in crafting resumes for job seekers? The Green Impact Zone needs volunteers to help students in our Essential Employability (EES) Skills training class create resumes. We’re looking for volunteers with backgrounds in business/human resources to help each of our students create a resume that will get noticed by an employer. Your coaching can help someone improve his/her life and it only takes a couple of hours of your time. Put your expertise to work in one or both of the following roles:
Volunteer Resume Development Coach — Evaluate and put into writing the student’s previous experience and help him/her describe and recognize any transferable skills. This session will be held Monday, Sept. 9, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Volunteer Resume Input Coach — Work with the EES student to format basic information into a professional resume. Then discuss how it could be a better and stronger presentation and continue working with the student to improve the resume. This session will be held Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 8:30-10:30 a.m.
The Green Impact Zone offers its free weeklong EES program to unemployed and underemployed residents to give them the professional polish needed to attract the attention of an employer. Participants also receive training in interviewing, language skills, computer literacy, proper attire, conflict resolution, work ethic and problem solving for the workplace. Graduates are better equipped to market themselves, get hired and be successful in their new jobs.
