Come help with Resume Writing and Offer Interview Tips!
Do you enjoy sharing your path to your career? Are you comfortable sharing your resume tips and tricks?
United Way Bay Area is partnering with the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC) as well as other groups to host a Resume Writing and Interview Tips session.
Figuring out a career path is hard for most people (especially youth of color) and systemic barriers make it even more difficult to expand their network to gain careers and important advice. Our Youth Programs team created this opportunity to engage young adults in a thoughtful experience with various professionals in all industries. This activity will enable youth to see various resume styles, improve their resume, learn format best practices, and ask questions in Zoom break-out rooms.
Dates: Thursday, September 17 from 11:30 - 1pm; Thursday, September 24 from 11:30 - 1pm and 4- 5:30pm
Qualifications: Non-traditional educational backgrounds and career roadmaps preferred. All career levels, ages, backgrounds, industries and demographics welcomed.
Resources: Volunteers should have a job or business, computer access and reliable internet. If you have entry-level job opportunities please send them to email@example.com to be shared with our participants 18+.
Once you express interest below, we will send you an email with the next steps and Zoom/or Hopin info. Thank you for your interest and don't hesitate to reach out with questions.
