Top 5 Skills AmeriCorps Alums Provide Employers

December 9, 2014

FINAL.AmeriCorpsAlums_Top5Skills_promographic_12.08.14Join us in celebrating Employers of National Service Amplification Day! AmeriCorps Alums has worked with the Corporation for National and Community Service and its partners, the Peace Corps and the Franklin Project of the Aspen Institute to launch this initiative on the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps.

We’ve been working towards this initiative for over two years and are well on our way to reaching our goal of welcoming 100 employers to this effort by the end of the year. AmeriCorps Alums Co-Executive Director Ben Duda says, “We have consistently maintained that AmeriCorps service on a resume matters. And we are thrilled to be part of a new movement to connect our nation’s top talent to jobs.”

Together, we will partner with these companies and organizations to create recruitment, hiring, and advancement opportunities for job seekers who served in AmeriCorps or the Peace Corps. AmeriCorps Alums Co-Executive Director Mary Bruce says, “Public, private, and nonprofit recruiters tell us time and again that AmeriCorps alumni are just what they’re looking for: proven, dedicated, results-oriented leaders … the best of America.”

Check out and share our new “Top 5 Skills” infographic highlighting the skills and talents alums bring to our careers (pdf available here)!
