Business leaders volunteer to help the unemployed

On November 3, volunteers from our Business Leadership Council put their professional expertise to work by coaching clients at Jewish Vocational Service (JVS), a Federation-supported agency. A group of over 20 BLC-ers helped job seekers to refine their interview skills, perfect an "elevator pitch," and fine-tune resumes and cover letters.

WHAT VOLUNTEERS ARE SAYING: "I moved to the Bay Area 6 months ago from Chicago and [was] looking for a worthy organization to invest my time and energy to. I think I found it. "[I] Spent..3 hours doing mock interviews and providing feedback on resumes and cover letters for some of the 10% unemployed at the Jewish Vocational Service of San Francisco. There are some amazing stories out there. If you are one of those fortunate enough to have a job, I encourage you to get involved in helping out. It will be a rewarding experience for you too!” -Stephen Kantor, volunteer with the Business Leadership Council
