Is it ever appropriate to ask your interviewer why you were rejected for a job, so that you can improve next time?

Hi! My name is Anina and I'm a high school senior interning at CareerVillage. I've always wondered if this was ok, because when I get rejected from places, I don't know how to improve next time. #human-resources #resume...

What is the difference in having volunteer work or paid job experience - besides the factor of money - in applying for a non-temporary job/career-related job?

I am debating whether to volunteer frequently, which would be easier to do over the summer before I go off to school, or to apply for jobs in my area, which I will have to quit before I leave. #career #resume #volunteering #college-jobs #employment #volunteer...

Do you update your resume over time? If yes how often do you do?

When is it time to take high school achievements off your resume?

I accomplished many things in high school, but I know there is a point where future employers, colleges, etc only care for one's endeavors in college. When would one say that it's time to put "childish" things away? #college #resume #high-school...

Is there an "ideal" resume?

I have two resumes: the simple resume looks rather boring to me, as if it was made in high school (which it was!), but the professional resume looks like it has a lot of info that can deter others from reading it. What guidelines should I follow to make sure I don't put too much or too little...

How do you make a good impression when volunteering?

Where I volunteer is a pretty impersonal place. I just go in unnoticed and barely get acknowledged by any staff. I understand that the staff is both busy and tired (this is an animal ER). I don't want to interrupt them, but how can I make good relations? The program offers letters of...

What are some 'remote' jobs college students can do to build skills?

I have noticed that there are a lot of remote jobs available nowadays, like freelance writing or helping out with data. Are these jobs good to build resume skills? If I don't have time for a full-time job, could these be useful for cash and testing professional skills? #college #career...
