Chapter Volunteers
Volunteers Needed for RWHRMA Committees! 

Getting Involved 

Getting involved with Raleigh-Wake means you are joining a team of highly motivated HR professionals. This networking will enhance your membership experience. Professional & personal demands often place limitations on volunteer participation, so Raleigh-Wake has volunteer opportunities ranging from short-term commitments to positions with varying term or time commitments.

As a 100% volunteer lead chapter, over 100 individuals donate their time and energy in serving our RWHRMA membership. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered your time to bring us quality programs!

If you would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities and are available to assist, please contact the Volunteer Director, Josh Foster

Xtreme Beginnings 2017 - Volunteers Needed!

Xtreme Beginnings, a School-To- Career project endorsed by RWHRMA and the Wake County Public School System, is seeking volunteers to help with our 17th annual initiative. This event is for WCPSS 10th and 11th graders and approximately 750 students will be in attendance.

Location: NCSU McKimmon Center
Time: 8:45 – 12:00

We are in need of approximately 90 practice interviewers who would be willing to help with practice interviews. A practice interview provides students with an opportunity to test out their interview skills with someone who is not evaluating them for an actual job. Students are interviewed for approximately 20 minutes from a professional who can provide them with feedback on whether or not their responses are suitable and also provide tips on their resume.

Dress for Success – Triangle is in need of volunteers for several of their services including Career and Image Coaches at their Durham and Raleigh locations.  Image Coaches help women with choosing professional attire for interviews/employment and Career Coaches help women with resume writing as well as developing interview skills.  Coaches typically volunteer for a 3 hour shift once a week, twice a month or once a month during the following hours:
