Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to experience Shift/Enter!

Our Job Seekers’ Workshops include three individualized sessions where job seekers speak one-on-one or in small groups with industry professionals. Volunteers are encouraged to attend the entire day, but are welcome to join for just one or more of these sessions as well.

  • Session A: 11:00 – 11:30
  • Session B: 11:45 – 12:15
  • Session C: 1:00 – 1:30

The entire schedule is available at here.

We are particularly looking for volunteers for the following tasks on May 24th:

Volunteer Roles:

  • Resume Clinic:
    • The Resume Clinic is intended to be a one-on-one quick resume review. Candidates will share their resume and talk with a recruiter or hiring manager on ways to improve their resume. If you have experience reviewing resumes and are willing to help, we’d love to hear from you!
  • Mock Interviews:
    • Sometimes a candidate just wants to practice answering those hard interview questions, or wants to try a different approach to presenting themselves to a hiring manager. We are looking for experienced interviewers to conduct interviews for ‘fake’ positions and help candidates gain comfort in this often uncomfortable process. 
  • Career Conversations:
    • These conversations could be focused on job searches, career paths, or something unique to the attendee’s situation. This is a private (or semi-private) conversation tailored to the attendee’s needs. We will try to collect their most pressing questions in advance.

Want to help out in some other way? Email us or join the Shift/Enter Slack!

All volunteers will receive free access to the event.
