Just heard an interesting Webinar about adding volunteerism to your resume. Very interesting stuff. So many of us do professional tasks in our unpaid and/or non-profit ventures and, as I learned, it certainly has a place on the paper used to market yourself.

I've had the chance to try many different things by volunteering, both in and out of the school district. It's also a great way to network and get to know your community. Most of it I never even considered "relevant experience" but of course it is! Last fall I organized a book fair that sold over $11K of books in 6 days.... (organizational skills, managing people, finances and (minor) marketing). That's just one example. I'm sure you have many.

For now, however, the shining sun beckons, and I am about to "get to know my community" in a different way... by going for a long run.

Whatever you do, or where ever you are, if your weather is as nice as in Bridgewater I encourage you to turn off the computer and catch some rays.
