Leverage Volunteer Work on Your Resume

Leverage Volunteer Work on Your Resume

Kim Isaacs | Monster Resume Expert

Target the Employer

Willett recommends researching the employer to discover how much emphasis it places on community and philanthropy. “Your volunteer section should mirror the results of your research and be modified to suit the background of the company you are interested in,” he says.

Adds Montermoso, “If the place that you are applying to works within a specific issue or cause, it could be beneficial to highlight similar organizations you have volunteered with to show that you are familiar with the issue area or to display a long-term/growing interest for a particular cause.”
