You already know that you do amazing things as a Girl Scout volunteer, but do potential employers?
Making your volunteer experience pop professionally on your résumé can give you a leg up in your job search, whether you’re seeking a new role at your current workplace, are looking to change jobs, or want to reenter the workforce after a break. “Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place… but Girl Scouting also builds resumes,” says Lindsay Hayden from Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana.
So what’s the best way to showcase your vast skillset and go-getter attitude to potential employers? Use the following tips from our volunteer experts!
“You should always be prepared to talk about the ideals of Girl Scouting that align with your personal ideals, like how it’s important to be a role model for young women or how you enjoy challenging people to do new things,” adds Nancy.
Show potential employers who you are as a person and just how much you have to offer! Your Girl Scout volunteer experience might just give you the competitive advantage your résumé needs.
