RPCVs know well the challenges of finding a job and constantly improving one's resume! But for people who speak English as a second language, had little formal education, and no university career center or Peace Corps job resources, navigating the resume writing process can be a challenge. Knowing the proper tips for successful interviews are also necessary to lock in a job. Housing Counseling Services has invited RPCV/W to volunteer with their community center residents in for a resume help session. The Faircliff Plaza West Apts on 14th and Euclid in Columbia Heights is home to over 300 low-income residents, many of whom only speak Spanish. Put those resume writing skills to good use, working with the center's adults and youth in resume writing and formatting, and interview skills. RPCVs will give a brief overview of resume basics, and then divide up to work one-on-one with residents to help improve their CVs. Volunteers will also give tips and best practices for interview skills, and do mock interviews with the community center residents to put the skills into action.


RPCV/W members will go to lunch nearby after the community service event.
