Volunteering in charity shop? Watch
Basically, I've applied to volunteer in two charity shops in my area, as I though it would be good to get the experience and would look good on my CV. I've arranged to meet with one on Wednesday, and I have a few questions:
I have an interview type thing: What kind of questions will they ask and will it be hard to get the volunteer role?
Is it a good experience and did you enjoy it/ felt you learnt something?
I have volunteered in a charity shop, it was a good experience as I was able to put something on my cv and I feel it helped me get my first job because I had something to talk about. I was on the phones and helped organise collections and deliveries and did basic filling. I don't really think it will be a very formal interview (I guess they just want to see you in person first and make sure you're not a moron) just relax and be yourself and if anything it can give you practice for a paid job interview in future.
The interview was fine and very informal. I'm going for a trial run tomorrow, and being trained on the till. Bit nervous though as I've never done that before. Thanks again
