Volunteering for Good: Giving Back During Transition

Candidates in transition can be reluctant to assume a volunteer role . Reasons include everything from "I need to devote all my energy to my job search" to "Why would an organization want someone who's unemployed?" However, volunteering can not only allow you to give back (perhaps in an area you never had time for before), but also offer important connections.  Join our panel of volunteers as they explain how you can "bridge the gap" by giving back.

This panel will be moderated by Beth Kurth, Partner,  Conway Communications, a strategic communications firm focused on Investor Relations and Financial Public Relations.
