Are you looking to volunteer in the Hudson, Ohio area? Then we are looking for you! Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and what better way then helping people in our communities that are looking for a job? Hudson Job Search relies on volunteers to act as coaches for the unemployed and underemployed that want to take advantage of our free services for job seekers.
Looking for a job today is far different from 20, 10, and even 5 years ago. In addition to the changes in job search technology and methods, there remains the personal “sting” of being unemployed and the financial concerns that today’s job seekers face.
Hudson Job Search, a non-profit organization, provides job seeker support and guidance to shorten the time it takes to gain meaningful employment. An important ingredient is their personal coach, who we call the Advisor. These volunteers are key to job search success.
Do you want to make a difference in your community? Would you like to share your time to help someone who would genuinely benefit? See if you have what it takes to be a Hudson Job Search Advisor.
Hudson Job Search is a voluntary outplacement organization. It is not an employment agency. Instead, it is a non-profit group that uses proven processes to provide job seekers the skills they need to obtain employment in today’s job market. The key to this effort is our advisors that provide support to unemployed clients seeking job search assistance.
Advisors are trained in our process of providing job seeker assistance in the following areas: job research, resumes, marketing plans, networking, interviewing, negotiating offers, and follow-up steps after landing a new position.
Advisors also have additional resources that are available to them to assist their assigned job seekers. These include Monday Night Meetings, events held twice a month with experts to speak on various job search processes. Both advisors and their job seekers are encouraged to attend.
Additionally, there is an Advisor Meeting held once a month. Here advisors advocate for their job seekers and seek help from other advisors to assist their job seekers.
Throughout the job search process, advisors generally meet with their job seekers weekly or biweekly for progress reviews, coping with challenges, and providing moral support. You don’t need an HR or recruiting background to be an advisor. We welcome all interested in helping those searching for their first job or have recently found themselves unemployed.
Pictured here are several advisors that attended the Advisor Retreat on April 2, 2022. This is a bi-annual event to update advisors and collaborate about changes within the organization. Several advisors also joined the event virtually, via Zoom.
Hudson Job Search, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, has been able to serve the area’s jobs seekers at no cost through the service of our volunteers and the generous contributions of area churches, foundations, businesses, and individuals. With this broad community support HJS has operated in a non-denominational and apolitical manner focusing on assisting the Northeast Ohio area job seeker.
