Thank you for volunteering with America Needs You - New Jersey as a Career Coach! Career Coaches work with college students during Saturday sessions to build their professional skills and help them realize their career potential.
Saturday workshops serve ANY's selective student Fellows who are all first-generation college students. Career Coaches work with Fellows on the day's curriculum and activities by serving as a substitute Mentor Coach when the Fellow's Mentor Coach is absent for the day or by offering additional professional perspectives to an existing Mentor Coach/Fellow pair. ANY curriculum covers all kinds of professional development topics from resume preparation and interview etiquette to giving and receiving feedback and managing up.
At workshops, Career Coaches typically participate in group or one-on-one work with Fellows; for example, writing and reviewing a cover letter or building a pros/cons list for deciding between two internships. Workshops are generally from 10:30am to 4pm. Career Coaches will expose students to their industries and prepare students to pursue internship/job opportunities by leading small group activities, networking, serving on panels, or giving industry presentations. We will send you a guide a few days beforehand with an overview of the event. Volunteers also attend a brief orientation on the day of the event.
You will receive a detailed email the week of the workshop which will include location, start time, and additonal pertinent information.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
