Leaders Learn By Doing, Too! A Guide to Resume Writing for Volunteer Leaders.
Howe, Patricia A.
The guide is designed to assist the 4-H volunteer leader in the preparation of a resume or a written record of life experiences and resulting skills, should they decide to seek paid employment outside the home, pursue further education or simply take stock of all they have learned from "doing" in the past. It is comprised of three major sections: Part I explains briefly the rationale for the guide; Part II discusses two types of resumes - the conventional one which emphasizes work experiences and the functional type which places emphasis on the individual's past activities and resulting competencies and skills; and Part III, the Appendix, includes a variety of helpful items, such as information on programs in higher education involved in awarding credit for life experiences, worksheets to use in preparing a resume, and sample conventional and functional resumes for reference. A bibliography at the end of Part III lists publications that provide information on both types of resume writing. (AH)
