Volunteers provide their services for free at churches, non-profit organizations and homeless shelters. As volunteers they can choose what kind of service to provide, some people volunteer their professional services as lawyers, teachers, nurses, etc, while others are involved in community service. Even though there is no remuneration for this kind of work, it adds an extra value to every resume. Moreover, this volunteering experience could be more advantageous if it is closely connected to your professional field.

If you want to apply for a volunteer position, we recommend you to prepare a good volunteer resume highlighting the following skills:

  • Committed to improve the quality life of a community.
  • Exceptional communication, relationship building and leadership skills.
  • Ability to motivate and encourage members.
