Finding Work: New Avenues

I am unemployed, like many other people, and I am trying to be creative about career paths. One of the directions I am thinking about is to work in a non-profit helping people to get back into the work force. I like volunteering to help people gain literacy and I’d like to educate people as to how to write resumes, seek work and pass the GED. It isn’t a cake walk to get into the non-profit arena. It’s important to make contacts and volunteer at first. In Chicago, knowing how to speak Spanish is also very important.
