Best New Jobs Suited For AmeriCorps Alums
As a CAP Volunteer alumnus, you have the benefit of being part of a network of more than 2,000 active members with knowledge and experience to share. A Spring 2011 survey of CAP’s short-term, summer camp, and long-term alumni found that CAP Volunteer alumni now work in a wide variety of career fields, the most popular being education (29%), human services (18%), and health science (10%). The survey also gathered career and contact information from alumni available and willing to talk to alumni and current volunteers about their career field. If you would like to be matched with a CAP alum from a particular career field, contact Amy Schill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-755-5322.
