What’s Your Why?
What is it that drives you to continuously bring excellence in the field you’re in? How are you impacting your community with the work that you do? Here are three ways to get involved in your community that can easily be highlighted on your resume.
- Implement skills-based volunteering into your lifestyle. It’s understandable that you may already have too many commitments but finding 2 hours per month to use your accounting, litigation, or cooking skills to give back to a local nonprofit is a significant way to give back.
- Become a board member of a local charity and collaborate with your employer to match your annual giving.
- Annual fundraisers generate a great deal of cash but can be incredibly draining to nonprofit staff and very costly. Partner with your colleagues to chair a fundraising event that will help the nonprofit staff to focus on the families they serve instead of securing donations.
Ready to make an Impact?
If you are not already involved in a local charity, there are always great nonprofit organizations that need committed individuals of excellence who are willing to partner with them. Your community impact is vital and paints a complete picture of who you are in the office as well as outside of the office!
