Volunteer Work Makes for Strong Applicants

When we interview potential additions to Team Top Notch Consultants, it’s always nice to see charitable efforts on résumés. For any jobseekers who want to impress hiring managers with their volunteer experiences, these are a couple of key considerations to keep in mind.

It’s important to think about your giving experiences in relation to the job you want to secure. Separating your efforts into those related to the position and those that display unrelated talents is a good place to start. From there, you can explain how the skills you’ve developed through supporting good causes can help you thrive in the position you want to fill. Any ancillary abilities you’ve picked up in the process will just be icing on the cake.

A community service section is a fairly common presence on a strong résumé, so that’s where you can include all the specific volunteer work you’ve done. It’s a good idea to research the company you want to join to find out what types of causes might resonate within its work culture. You can then decide which giving experiences to emphasize the most on your C.V.

We prioritize social impact as a core Top Notch Consultants value, as do most other successful companies. You can impress hiring managers if you clarify your commitment to giving. Find more of our thoughts on philanthropy by liking Top Notch Consultants on Facebook.
