What's in a volunteer resume? 

The volunteer resume includes: 

  • Snapshot: Shows the total number of volunteer hours—approved and pending—the impact value, the number of Need responses, the number of event RSVPs, and the number of fanned agencies.

  • Volunteer Hours By Month: Graph showing volunteer hours for the past six months.

  • Volunteer Hours by Interest: Shows the top interests assigned to the Needs with the most hours for the volunteer.
    • The interests shown in the graph do no necessarily reflect the interests specified in the volunteer's profile.

  • Need Responses by Primary Interest: A doughnut graph showing the primary interests selected for the Needs the volunteer responded to. 

  • Benchmarks: Here's where you can review any benchmarks you've reached. 
    • This information only appears if the site has established benchmarks. 

  • Volunteer Hours: This table lists the date volunteered, the name or description of the Need, the hours submitted, the miles traveled, the Need type, and the status of the hours—approved or pending. 
    • The type column specifies what the hours are associated with, i.e.: 
      • If they're hours submitted for a posted Need on the site, then you see GC.
      • If they're hours submitted for an advanced event, then you see AEM.
      • If they're hours submitted for service learning, then you see SLM.
