The problem I see with most people is that they don't want to walk their post and they all have an excuse for why if you can't or don't want to walk around and do the job then this is not for you.. Stay home and sleep there

Top 4 Reasons Every High School Student Should Volunteer

#jobready #jobsearch #advice #teenjobs #teensummerjobs #resume #profile

From gaining new skills to opening the door to job opportunities, volunteering is a win for all.

Volunteering is a great way for high school students to give back to the community, experience working in a certain field, and gain valuable new skills. It speaks to your character in a way that test scores cannot, and it will give your college applications a boost.

So, if you’re in high school and thinking about volunteering, read on to learn about how it’s beneficial, and why we recommend it.

Benefits of Volunteering 1. A way to give back As a student, you’re probably super busy. Between school work, clubs, sports, a job (if you have one), your days fill up quickly. But volunteering your time is selfless, and a generous way to get to know a new group of people with whom you’d otherwise not interact. From volunteering at a preschool to spending time with senior citizens, it can be deeply fulfilling, and it’s sure to make a profound difference to the community you’re spending time with.

2. Build new skills and relationships Volunteering is an opportunity to learn new skills that are foundational to any future career. You’ll sharpen your organizational skills, prioritization, time management, problem solving, and communication skills, to name a few. It’s also a great opportunity to network and build out a list of contacts whom you can reach out to in the future.

3. Resume/college application boost Volunteering can set you apart from other applicants and candidates. Doing something for which you aren’t paid shows selflessness, drive, ambition, and creativity: qualities that make you stand out. While many volunteering programs can even transfer into school credits, it’s also a great way to gain real-world work experience while you’re still in school.

4. Promotes open-mindedness Between working with a community of retirees to helping out at a zoo, volunteering opens yourself up to new experiences, and it can help you see the world differently. It keeps you grounded and fosters a sense of social awareness. New experiences can open the door to new passions, too. And who knows? Volunteering could lead you to find your future career.

Where to start Here are some great places to look into volunteering if you’re interested in taking the next step. • Sports lovers: volunteer to help with after-school fundraising activities for school sports teams, help coach younger kids in little league/other sports, assist with sports team management • Animal lovers: local animal shelter, help with dog adoption services, zoo/aquarium • Nature lovers: volunteer at your local farmer’s market and help with general set up/produce transfer, check out any local tree planting/greenery initiatives, volunteer at your local nature conservancy branch to help with garbage clean-up, trail clearing, river cleaning, habitat restoration, and more • “People” people: local hospitals, soup kitchens or food banks, retirement or nursing homes, reading at a local library, preschool or childcare centers

For any and all of these places, we recommend doing a quick search of the area that interests you and looking for a phone number or your town’s local programs. Ask if they’re looking for any volunteers...you’ll likely be welcomed to help with open arms.

RESUME: CREATIVE WAYS TO LIST JOB SKILLS

List Job Skills Creatively On Your Resume

With the competition in the job market increasing for job seekers, it is crucial to grab the attention of the hiring manager if your resume has a chance. Employers are looking for resumes that showcase high quality skills and rich field experiences. To create a resume that stands out from the other candidates' resumes, focus on format and word choice.

A job candidate's skills and relevant knowledge are substantiated by the keywords they choose to use. Industry-specific core skills will enable a job candidate to successfully pass through an applicant tracking system (ATS), which is utilized by the majority of companies today to obtain the right candidates.

Each resume should be specific to the job you are applying for. You can easily locate the keywords a company is focused on by looking at the requirements listed for the job. If you have knowledge of, or experience using certain software programs listed in the job description, include them on your resume to draw employers' attention.

Simply highlighting keywords, however, is not enough to make your resume stand out. Due to the recent shift in resume trends, no longer are resumes merely a listing of jobs and duties. They are truly promotional materials. As such, it is no longer enough to say that you are a creative, motivational problem-solver. You need to demonstrate it. The challenge is greater for those who have been laid off or who have been out of work for an extended period of time. For these professionals, the task of proving that their skills are relevant can be more difficult than it is for other job seekers.

Job seekers need to add transferable skills that they've gained from paid and unpaid past experiences to their resumes. Transferable skills acquired during any activity from volunteer positions, classes, projects, parenting, hobbies and sports can be applicable to one's next job. By adding transferable skills to a resume, employers get a better understanding and broader picture of who they are hiring as well as the interests, values and experiences that the candidate brings to the table.

The idea is to explain your skills and experiences in a way that highlights any gains. Be specific and provide relevant statistics wherever you can. Revenue wins, client growth, and budget savings are easy to quantify and are impressive on your resume. Here are a few categories of skills you could include on your resume, along with unique ways to express them.

Interpersonal Communication

Jobs require teamwork. There will be constant exchanges with co-workers, and discussing and sharing ideas with supervisors. Employers want to know the level of communication skills you have and how well you work with others. The specific skills required will vary based on your position. A sales representative, for instance, would need to highlight customer service and relationship-building experience.

On your resume: writes clearly and concisely, listens attentively, negotiates/resolves differences, provides and asks for feedback, offers well-thought-out solutions, cooperates and works well with others, thrives in a collaborative environment.

Planning And Organization

If the job you want involves working on research projects and companywide campaigns, you want to show off your top-notch planning abilities. "Organization skills" may sound like an overused filler term, but those skills are the ones that will help you succeed. Show potential employers you've got what they're looking for by outlining your involvement in, and results from, current and previous projects.

On your resume: identifies and gathers appropriate resources, thoroughly researches background information, develops strategies, thinks critically to solve problems, coordinates and completes tasks, manages projects effectively, meets deadlines.

Management And Leadership

Although it may not always be easy to express them on a resume, management and leadership skills can be gained in a variety of conventional and unconventional ways.

Demonstrating your management abilities on paper requires you to think about what it is you do best as a leader and how you guide your fellow assiciates toward success. To give employers a better idea of what you've accomplished, discuss the size of the team and the scope of the projects you manage.

On your resume: teaches/trains/instructs, counsels/coaches, manages conflict, helps team members set and achieve goals, delegates effectively, makes and implements decisions, oversees projects.

Social Media

Social media is one of the most desired skills in a variety of job fields. Socially active organizations are more likely to attract top talent, drive new sales leads and better engage customers. Therefore, when employers look for new hires, they're also typically looking for new internal-brand ambassadors.

For positions directly involving work on corporate social media campaigns, hiring managers look for concrete numbers and metrics, including web traffic, audience reach and overall engagement.

On your resume: manages social media campaigns, measures and analyzes campaign results, identifies and connects with industry influencers, sparks social conversation within the brand's community, creates and executes content strategies, drives engagement and leads, enhances brand image through social presence.

5 ATSHole facts you need to know

You got all the right experience, in-demand skills, personal traits and outstanding work habits that make you a smart hiring choice. You send out dozens of online applications everyday but despite all your talents NO ONE is calling you back for an interview and even less, a job offer.

So what’s the problem? Short answer… you’re probably another ATSHole victim!

Here are 5 crucial ATSHole facts you need to know:

1, Meet the ATS Bot - 75% of all US employers use a recruiting or applicant tracking system, (ATS). See, What's an ATSHole

2, Employers LUV their ATS Bot! - 94% of employers say their ATS or recruiting software has positively impacted their hiring process while 80% of candidates described their online job search and job applications as STRESSFUL.

3, The ATS Bot LUV's rejections - 75% of qualified job applicants are rejected by the ATS due to meticulous BS reasons like incorrect resume formatting, age, employment dates and not enough keyword matches.

4, The ATS Bot is a tough nut to crack - 60% of job candidates are unable to complete online applications due to technical issues or flat out quit the application because it was too complex or too long.

5, Looks like this ATSHole isn’t going away anytime soon - While 70% of applicants feel an online application should be five steps or fewer, only 40% of employers think the same.

Do you have an ATSHole horror story about missing out on great job opportunity due to these facts or other ridiculous reasons?
