9:50:00 pm - Something Serious for the CV

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


To close each month, we will take a tiny break from the funnies to post a serious piece.

Today we deal with a volunteer program that might help add value to the resume of a budding reporter looking to break into journalism.

Spare time spent on a hobby editing at the Open Directory Project can help bolster a reporter's CV. Imagine telling a prospective employer that you:

ODP wants quality volunteers. If you hoestly want to be an ODP editor and take part in helping, then repeatedly read the guidelines. Read them over and over and over again. Then submit an application with the same care you would if lodging a job application.

Make sure that on your editor application you include the three suggested urls and that you describe all three sites correctly (according to the guidelines link provided in an earlier reply).

(PS: Let me know if you are accepted. I'd be happy to help show any new editors the ropes.)
