Resume & LinkedIn

I requested that Toastmasters District One create a position for me in 2011: Social Media Chair. I held the position 2011-2012 & 2012-2013. I’m taking a break June 30th & giving someone else a chance to grow their career for the next term and the ability to list work experience on their resume and LinkedIn profile. It can be hard getting work experience to list on resumes and LinkedIn – ask anyone in college or anyone that has already graduated and hasn’t landed their first real job.

My daughter worked 11 hours at the booth between Friday and Saturday extolling the virtues of Toastmasters to people curious about the communication and leadership tracks offered.

Moving forward, any volunteer support I provide will come in the form of supporting my daughter serving in leadership roles for one year terms. In California, a student needs a 4.0-4.5 to get into their school of choice. I’ve been training my daughter since she was seven on a variety of skills including sales, communication, fund raising, marketing, taxes, persuasion, intent, networking, philanthropy, entrepreneurship, calculated risk, health, technology and more.  I’ve told my daughter one hundred times that she can enter any field and it’s very smart to volunteer when entering a new field. This strategy applies to people older than twelve too.
