Land Your Next Job 50% Faster*: Tap into the Volunteer Network

March 10, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Did you know that volunteers have a much better chance of finding a job than jobseekers who don’t volunteer. Ever wonder why?
  • Understand why volunteering makes you a stronger job candidate.
  • Know why most companies value giving back to the community.
  • Learn how acquiring skills as a volunteer is your “pathway to employment.”

Sound too good to be true? Hear from current Business and Career Services (BCS) Volunteers who:

  • Have built confidence and increased self-esteem.
  • Bridged resume gaps.
  • Learned new virtual presentation skills.

Tonight you can casually network in virtual breakout rooms, with recently landed professionals at area corporations. Many say, “Volunteering was the best training—EVER— for my new career.”

You’ll have the opportunity to practice your elevator speech as you network with current and past BCS Volunteers. *BCS Volunteers find jobs 50% faster than the average job seeker.

But you’ll hear much more at this session. The camaraderie and fun will lift your spirits. Guaranteed. Register for this free session today!
