How do I translate my current volunteer involvement into work experience on my resume?
Two options come to mind, (1) programs for veterans at pharma companies, and (2) foundations like the Bill and Melinda gates foundation that are doing a lot of great work in community health. Good luck!
Hope you're having a great day and thank you for your service! It is an interesting question to ask, but also a very common one in the military spouse community too - in a job search (e.g. during interviews, in resumes,) how does one balance the conversation of explaining one's great experience, with also, periods of an employment gap?
I think you have already put yourself in a strong spot, with experience related to the HealthCare field; these will be great topics to integrate into your future job search. As well, it is also, good to have a firm strategy before entering your targeted job search too. This could be a great resource to get this conversation started: How to Answer Interview Questions About Employment Gaps, from the balance - https://www.thebalancecareers.com/how-to-answer-interview-questions-about-employment-gaps-2061138 and How to Explain an Employment Gap on Your Resume, from the balance - https://www.thebalancecareers.com/how-to-explain-a-gap-on-your-resume-2063188.
As well, I would look into using our "Community" tab too. Exploring Advisors within the HealthCare and Human Resources field, could be a great additional strategy for this job search.
Hope this helps and thank you for your time!
