Volunteerism and Your Career

Speaker: Laura Maltz
Time: 10:35 AM – 11:35 AM CT
Session Description: Volunteer experiences provide outlets to contribute to missions that you care about, while helping you to deepen or gain new skills. Ever wonder how these experiences might lead you to or make you more competitive for your next job? Join this session to engage in dialogue about the “Why” and the “How” of volunteering and how those decisions can act as bridges to new professional experiences. We will walk through several models for effectively highlighting volunteerism on your resume depending on your professional goals, and workshop how to write “Statements of Impact” to describe your work. If you have a resume draft, we encourage you to have it handy while attending this session.
