10 Hudson Valley Parent n June 2017 By BRILAH HARRIS Go ahead, brag about YOU for once Many stay-at-home moms have plans to return to their professional lives at some point in the future. Job coach and career counselor Jay Lang of Middletown says it's important for moms to keep de- tailed records of their volunteer work, so that all relevant experience is included on their resumes when it's time to go back to work. "Employers want to identify measurable accomplishments and transferable skills," he says. He also says that resumes should be "industry agnostic." Meaning, it's not in what field you volunteered, but what you accomplished for the organization that matters. Did you organize ticket sales for an annual fundraiser? Did sales grow year-to- year? Lang says this is the perfect example of something to be put on a resume - include how you achieved those results. These tips and more are shared with clients at the Orange County One Stop office, on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Newburgh location and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Middletown location. Workshops run from 9am to 12pm and from 12:30 to 3:30pm. All job seekers are eligible to attend the workshops.
