Volunteer Opportunities

    February 17, 2015

    Virtual Resume Reviews: I would send you resumes via Word to review for feedback. There is a one-page best practices sheet to go along with this work to try to keep a consistent message/format regarding the resumes our group suggests. You’d review the resume, make suggestions within the document, in email, or by revising it in Word --- your choice and at your earliest convenience. You’d send it back to me to forward to the job seeker. We may have several resumes to review in a week or only a couple in a month. If you are crazy busy, just let me know and I’ll move the resume to the next available volunteer on the list. The job seeker will not know your identity or contact information (unless you decide to include a note for them).

    Virtual Mock Phone Screens: I would coordinate your time and a job seekers’ time along with a conference line to perform a mock phone screen. There is a three-page best practices packet to go along with this work to help you prepare for timing (it’s a one-hour commitment) and suggestions for common screening questions.

    Joliet: Career Café meets in downtown Joliet on Tuesday mornings, 10:30-12:00. They are in need of workshop presenters and HR professionals for a panel-type presentation.

    Plainfield: The St. Mary’s Job Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, 6:30-9:00pm near Route 59 and Renwick. The 2nd of the month session is for networking and job coach one-on-ones. The 4th of the month session involves a workshop and/or employer panel. They could use help from individuals as coaches, as networkers, or as speakers/panelists.

    Naperville: I work for the Community Career Center in Naperville. We are located at Route 59 and Diehl Road. We are always looking for HR volunteers to help with one-on-one career coaching sessions, workshops, Q&A Ask the Recruiter sessions and group facilitation of our Women’s Group and Men’s Group. We are open and needing assistance Monday – Thursday 9:00-3:00 and Friday – Saturday 9:00-1:00.

    Thank you again for your offer of time and talent!  We are truly grateful for your willingness to help!
