A more civil world by raising awareness of soft skills
Job-seekers are complaining they can't find jobs, companies are complaining they can't find people. Where is the gap? Many job-seekers are good in their particular profession such as finance, engineering, accounting, but are poor in their professional image and communication skills (or soft skills). The first thing we do is to help job seekers in grooming themselves and sit in front of a webcam to do a "resume video" so they can impress future employers, then we encourage them to have on-going training in their professional image management by being IITTI-certified to stand above the crowd.
Help spread the awareness of the global IITTI professional image certification by meeting with career counselors, job agencies, company HRs in your local community.
Note: This is a 'volunteer from home' project. IITTI provides on-going guidance in doing advocacy work to stakeholder groups such as career counselors, job agencies, and company HRs. This is a highly skill-based activity and will be a great learning process as well as exposure for volunteers!
First and foremost are advocates to write blogs about how job-seekers can drastically increase their chances of getting hire by getting the IITTI certification (or at least the 'resume video' part), something that employers would understand.
Instead of asking people to donate to IITTI, we believe in providing a valuable service to be sustainable. Check out our social enterprise platform (www.Rocktell.com) where job-seekers can do their "resume video". Try it yourself and you may find it fun!
