If you have no formal employment or are young and haven't had a real job, consider your volunteer and learning experiences that helped you learn how to be punctual, dependable and responsible. Volunteer experiences contribute many transferable skills like leadership, organization, learning to work well with others (being a team player is still a highly desirable and valuable skill). You should be able to articulate how you worked on projects and how rewarding those experiences were. Think and talk about what you learned. Did you lead a team? Did you work on fundraising? Did you engage in phone-banking for a charitable organization? Don't underestimate your work. Use it! These invaluable traits and skills are also highly valued and needed in the workplace......

What an amazing post @Sharon B! This is really helpful advice and really applicable for a lot of Jobcasers! Thanks for explaining how building these skills can set you up for success later on! I think Volunteering is rewarding in so many ways and younger folks should do it more often for sure. 💓
