How to Professionally Market Your Volunteer Service: A Training with U-M Head Peace Corps Recruiter Martha Fedorowicz

West Quadrangle
Multipurpose Room

Description: During this training, participants will learn how to put their volunteer and international service experiences into resumes, cover letters, and motivation statements which can be used to apply for jobs in the public and non-profit sectors and for post-graduate service opportunities. Participants will also hear about what it is like to serve in the Peace Corps, how to prepare yourself for international service work as an undergraduate, and things to consider when doing service work when you are an outsider in that community.
