Chrysalis volunteers play an integral role in empowering individuals to build crucial job search skills and instill the self-esteem needed to succeed in the interview and beyond. Please read this page thoroughly before continuing to the next page.

Based on skills, experience, and interests, our volunteers are matched with one of the following positions:

1. Resume Preparation and Practice Interviews. Are you an editing wiz, ‘that person’ everyone comes to for help on their resumes, or an interviewing pro? Do you like talking to people and learning about their personal story? If so, this might be the right role for you! You will work directly with clients to create or improve resumes and polish their interviewing skills. For this role, you will need:

  • Strong computer and word processing skills (able to create a high-quality resume within a one-hour period)
  • Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to deliver constructive feedback in a sensitive, encouraging manner
  • Weekly & Bi-weekly opportunities available

2. Job Search Readiness Class Facilitation. Are you outgoing, an excellent public speaker, and fantastic at managing large groups? Class facilitators lead job readiness courses, covering topics such as how to find job leads, write cover letters, maintain professional work habits, and job-search on the internet. For this role, you will need:

  • Excellent public speaking skills and the ability to stand for 2 hours
  • A passion for teaching and the ability to follow a structured curriculum
  • Comfort managing large groups of people and fostering a positive, engaging, and professional learning environment

* Chrysalis has a structured curriculum and provides training for all volunteer opportunities.

** For our San Fernando Valley and Anaheim offices, the ability to read, write, and speak Spanish fluently is a major plus, although we also have English-only positions available.
