Image Size 200x200

What if you could walk into a room full of employers that not only know about AmeriCorps but are targeting their recruitment to AmeriCorps alums? What if you could connect with them without even getting up from your desk? Join us for our Virtual Career Fair on June 30 from 1-4 PM EDT, and you can access this network of employers for free from your computer. You’ll have the chance to connect in one-on-one chats with recruiters who represent a wide range of public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

Last year one of our employer partners said they value national service alumni because they are “flexible, work effectively within diverse communities, and are mission driven.” Another representative appreciated that alums come in with a team orientation, a “client and community focus, strong communication skills, and experience building relationships.” We agree and are eager to connect you to your next opportunity.Hold 6/30 on your calendar and stay tuned for a link to register!

HOW TO REACH 85-90% OF JOB RECRUITERS
Get LinkedIn if you want to link up with HR recruiters, says our Career Coach Denise Riebman. LinkedIn members with over 500 connections reach 85-90% of recruiters. Not only are companies finding talent on LinkedIn, but 94% of recruiters are using the site to vet interview candidates. Yet, LinkedIn is more than just a place to search for jobs; it’s also where you tell your story. Who are you and what should recruiters do or feel about you after they read your profile? Learn more about telling your story on LinkedIn and other ways to maximize this network by watching “LinkedIn: More Than Just a Website” on-demand here. One of our attendees said this was “the best AmeriCorps Alums webinar I’ve attended thus far,” and we’re excited to share it with you.
