Have you listed your charity endeavors on your résumé? If not, you probably should. A recent LinkedIn survey found that one in five employers hired someone primarily because of her volunteer service outside the office. “If you’re unemployed, this work shows you’ve been productive,” says John Challenger, the CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, a Chicago-based outplacement firm. “And if you’re already employed, it supplements the experiences you’ve gained at your job.” Here’s how to put your good work to good use.
DO: List specific skill-building volunteer activities on your resume’. Substantive work, like managing the budget of a sizable charity or recruiting and training a team, is attractive to employers because those experiences are applicable to business situations, says Suzanne Lucas, a 10-year human-resources veteran based in Basel, Switzerland. But only include accomplishments that can be put into quantifiable terms or work that demonstrates your leadership qualities. (Avoid listing charitable work for which all you did was set up chairs or do some other minor service.)
DON’T: Include work with organizations that might be considered polarizing.
Listing overtly political or religious groups could turn off a hiring manager who has different beliefs. (Picking one candidate over another because of such factors is illegal in many cases, but it still happens.)
DO: Let the volunteer work on your resume’ speak for itself. That is to say, don’t bring it up in the interview. Why? The employers who find the service to be relevant will ask you about it. But some won’t feel that way about any unpaid work. In such cases, it’s best to stay quiet.
DON’T: Emphasize volunteering that’s directly related to being a parent. Researchers have found that women who cite volunteering related to motherhood on a resume’–for example, PTA work–are less likely to be called back for interviews than are those who list a neighborhood group. So list such experience only if it’s highly related to the job that you’re seeking.

Have a great day,
Good morning to everyone. I hope that your day is going well. I had the opportunity to see a wonderful movie last night about life, living and enjoying it at any age. Filmed in one of the places I have always dreamed of going and plan to visit or possibly live before I am no longer in this world. This movie will make you laugh, cry and most of all appreciate that life is a privilege and not a right. Life is short and we should enjoy and appreciate everything and everyone in it.
I have put a few clips below for you to watch, if you haven’t gotten a chance to see it, it would be worth your while to take time to watch it by yourself or with family. *I rented it from Redbox.*
Paying it forward: Rachel Carson’s Legacy
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Rachel Carson’s seminal book, Silent Spring,
which warned of the far-reaching dangers of deadly pesticides and was widely regarded as a catalyst for
America’s conservation, clean air and water and environmental protection movements. Now author
Laurie Lawlor and illustrator Laurie Beingessner bring her message to today’s youth in the children’s
book, Rachel Carson and Her Book That Changed the World.
Carson’s life–from her childhood fascination with nature to becoming a college graduate and biologist
to writing Silent Spring before her death in 1964–is told in easy-to-understand terms. An epilogue recounts
her legacy for all generations. Carson encouraged readers to rethink fundamental values about the relationship
between people and nature and not to suppose that, “Nature exists for the convenience of man,” as she put it.
One of the vivid examples of life’s interconnectedness that Carson cited occurred in Clear Lake, California,
between 1949 and 1957. To eradicate gnats, three sprayings of DDD, a cousin of DDT, were applied, killing
western grebes that breed on floating nests. When scientists examined the dead birds, they found astounding
levels of DDD and realized that it occurred because the birds fed on lake fish that fed on DDD-laden plankton,
passing the toxic pesticide up the food chain in “a whole chain of poisoning.” Carson also warned of potential
human cancers resulting from handling pesticides and eating contaminated fish. The State Department of
Public Health consequently banned DDD in 1959 and the 2001 Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic
Pollutants subsequently banned DDT for agricultural use worldwide in 2004.
Along with the enactment of many environmental laws, Carson’s work helped spur the creation of the
Environmental Protection Agency and Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The advent of Earth
Day, in 1970, led Mark Hamilton Lytle to write in his biography of Carson, The Gentle Subversive, that, “No
event could have done more to celebrate the ideals that Rachel Carson bequeathed to the environmental
movement.” Her legacy lives on.
