Last Friday I spoke at a local volunteer fair. The ‘My Time to Give’ fair was created to help students find a suitable placement- which is great!
Both profit and not-for-profit companies set up tables and had information readily available for the taking. I spoke on the importance of personal branding and how proper volunteer etiquette on the job would help the students get the most out of their experience.
I have hired MANY volunteers and I have to say that there is a certain level of uncertainty when it comes to “working for free” which is why I felt the need to address rules of etiquette. Some of you may utilize volunteers so I wanted to share the handout I created to coincide with my topic!
If you want to print it out- feel free to use it as a handout! You can download it here for free: BROCCOLI Consulting- Volunteer Etiquette Handout
