Volunteer Spotlight

Kara Conley, Bright Horizons

 

Kara began volunteering her time providing additional insight of the hiring process in 2015 as a CWEE mock interviewer and resume reviewer. During this time, she provided job leads and recommendations to participants interested in her field, and helped facilitate connections among participants and hiring managers if the opportunity seemed like an ideal fit for the career seeker. As Kara transitioned into her current role, she continued to connect CWEE job seekers with job leads and career opportunities and has recruited her fellow colleagues and hiring managers to assist with the mock interviewing process. In addition, Kara continues to provide pertinent resume feedback necessary for our students to gain employment in their desired field.

 

Thank you for your continued support, Kara!

Preparing Students for Employment

  • Mock Interviews: Donate your time and experience in hiring by serving as a mock interviewer. Mock interviews happen every other Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and can be done on-site at CWEE or over the phone. Each mock interviewer will get a packet that includes a participant’s resume, job description, list of questions and a rating sheet. Interviewers have the opportunity to provide valuable feedback and experience to support our career seekers in their job search process.
  • Resume Reviewer: Share your experience as a hiring manager and provide feedback on resumes submitted. This process can be completed electronically and works well with volunteers who need flexibility.

 

All volunteer positions for this area are currently filled.

 

Work Experience Opportunities

  • Internships: Provide an opportunity (4 – 12 weeks) for a career seeker to build and enhance their work experience through a supervised work experience that is non-paid. CWEE provides workers compensation for all interns.
