Think about things you enjoy doing and go from there. If you love books, think about volunteering at a library. If animals capture your heart, call some local shelters and see if they need any extra help. Not only will you be doing some good in your community, you will also be building up your resume and gaining valuable references and connections.
When Chantera started looking for her very first job, she was able to put volunteering at a daycare on her applications. Within just a few weeks she started getting calls for interviews and received multiple job offers.
“I finally chose Babies “R” Us since I volunteered at a daycare and know what to expect,” Chantera told Snagajob.
Her daycare volunteer work made Chantera stand out to Babies “R” Us because it showed she had experience working with parents and children.
“My volunteering duties help me and ensured my job,” Chantera said. “I know this because he told me personally that he wanted people like me who know how to act with mothers and fathers with babies or who are expecting a baby.”
Congratulations on landing your first job, Chantera!
