About three years ago, Jennifer Turner signed up as a 3 Cups of Coffee mentor. “I have had some great mentors in my life and wanted to give back,” Jennifer recalled.
Since becoming a mentor, Jennifer has made a huge difference for our clients. “I mentored a woman reentering the workforce, and we worked together on how to properly answer behavior-based interview questions and discussed what employers are looking for during an interview,” Jennifer remembered. “After just two cups of coffee, she successfully gained employment.”
Jennifer not only mentors, she is a member of our Corporate Advisory Committee, conducts virtual mock interviews for clients, has written a blog post for our website, and helps promote our work whenever she can.
“Volunteering with PA Women Work is a great opportunity to help others. Not only has the organization impacted so many of their clients’ lives, through volunteering I have improved my own resume, developed my professional network and boosted my self-esteem, as well,” Jennifer said. “It is a wonderful feeling to be at the point of my career where I can give back.”
Volunteers like Jennifer make our work possible. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, sign up for one of our opportunities today!
