How would one represent volunteer experience on their resume in the most effective manner?
I am only 24 years old and I think that the type of work that I'm doing in these volunteer environments adds a lot of credibility to the strength of my resume.
The two principle efforts that I am involved with are: Executive Services Corps, which offers non-proft management and business consulting to other non-profits in the area, and the logistical planning of a gala-fundraiser event with approximately 1,000 attendants.
Thank you in advance,
the same as your other accomplishments
If you did something significant in those organizations, put them in. Better if you can measure something. Organized 80 volunteers for major dinner fund raising dinner. Volunteers raised X amount of money.
If you have a couple of jobs listed (along with the respective accomplishments), I would leave a line open underneath and then put in the accomplishment from your volunteer activities.
Wendii et al, any differing opinions?
