VOLUNTEERING & EMPLOYABILITY

5TH MARCH, 2021

1:00PM - 3:00PM AEDT

Zoom Online Webinar

Volunteers play a significant role working with our communities and give their skills, time, and energy for the benefit of others. Volunteering also has many benefits for the individual in terms of developing transferrable skills and increasing employability. This workshop will provide practical guidance on how to select volunteer roles that can increase skills and experience and will also offer ideas on how you can present this in a job application and interview.

Upon completion of the workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the skills and experience gained from volunteer roles
  2. Understand opportunities to test a career change via volunteering
  3. Identify ways to improve your employability via a volunteer role
  4. Identify ways to highlight and present your skills gained through a volunteer role in a job application and interview
