I'm a really big fan of paying it forward and giving back to help those in need, especially when it comes to job searching.
Being able to help as many job seekers as possible is one the reasons I donate my books to non-profit organizations, including Hiring for Hope, which provides a variety of free services for job seekers.
Hiring for Hope's approach sums up how I feel about giving better than I can:
"Flora Edwards got it right when she said: "In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.'"
If you've got wings and are interested in giving a little of your time back to help job seekers, Hiring for Hope is in need of Career Angel volunteers with the expertise and time to provide personal career coaching.
Career Angels is seeking "Altruistically motivated, experienced career professionals from across the country that are interested in making a positive impact on people's lives by helping them through the career management process."
If you're a career professional with five or more years of hands-on experience assisting job seekers in a career related profession and are able to provide personal assistance to two job seekers a month, either in-person or virtually, your help would be greatly appreciated.
For job seekers, here's more information on Hiring for Hope and how the organization can help you job search. For employers, here's information on Hiring for Hope's Workforce Solution Services.
