Summertime Means Volunteer Time!

If you are not already taking classes or participating in an internship this summer, now would be the perfect time to gain additional experience through volunteerism. Employers highly favor seeing that a potential candidate has been involved in their community, especially if the employer has a reputation for giving back to the community. If you are unsure how to get started or what types of volunteer activities are available, you can visit SA2020.org and click on “Get Involved.” There you will be instructed how to locate volunteer opportunities. Additionally, you can visit UnitedWaySATX.org, click on “Get Involved” and then click on “Volunteer.” Lastly, don’t forget to add your volunteer work to your resume! If you are unsure where on your resume you should list it or how it should read, be sure to contact the Career Center to make an appointment with a Career Counselor! Contact us at 210-458-4589.
