Build Up Your Resume

Volunteer experience can be used to fill in gaps in your employment history. Volunteer postions can involve leadership, problem solving, creativity, project planning, time management, and teamwork. In your resumes, cover letters, and job interviews, you can refer to volunteering experience and accomplishments that are relevant to the job you're seeking. Bonus: volunteering shows employers that you've used your out-of-work time productively and that you're an involved member of your community.
