Applying for jobs during harsh economic times is not an easy task, but building your resume by adding extracurricular activities and volunteer positions can help boost you into the next tier of job applicants. Being an eCYBERMISSION Virtual Judge is a volunteer role that can be added to your resume whether you’re a college student about to graduate, or a current professional looking to enhance your professional status.

Jonathan Scharff is an education major at Towson University in Towson, Md., and a Virtual Judge for eCYBERMISSION. His professors have encouraged him to build his resume by getting involved outside of the classroom.

“I have a heavy work load as a student teacher,” said Scharff, “but the Virtual Judge process is simple enough for me to do on my own time and it helps build my resume.”

It’s highly important for job candidates to show they have experience in the field they are applying for. Sara Kohout, a career manager at Towson University, pushes students to look for volunteer opportunities associated with their field of study.

“When looking at job candidates, employers like to see a connection to the field that they are studying,” said Kohout. “It not only shows they have experience, but also a passion for what they do as well.”

eCYBERMISSION is looking for passionate volunteers to encourage science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in the community. If you’re looking to have a career in STEM or education, sign up today to boost your resume.

To register, go to the eCYBERMISSION web site and click “Virtual Judge Registration” under the registration tab. Use the registration code “Social” and fill out your information.

For questions about the Virtual Judge role, the eCYBERMISSION competition or the registration process, please contact the Volunteer Program Coordinators at 1-866-GO-CYBER (462-9237), or via e-mail at volunteerprogram@ecybermission.com
