volunteering involving finance?
Posted 19 January 2011 - 03:15 AM
So my school does 6 month coop cycles, and I have to partake in three of them. I'm currently searching for my first one and notice how my resume...sucks. I don't have any experience in my major field (Business Administration with concentration in Finance). My experience section basically consists of working at my uncle's sandwich shop, Circle K volunteering, and tutoring a kid in high school
Currently I'm volunteering to do tax returns for the tax season, so thats something good I can put in, though it is more related to accounting than finance. I was wondering if anyone knows about any other types of volunteering that relates to the business field? Specifically finance?
I thought about doing internships at a company, but they occur in the summer (my coop cycle is Spring/Summer), so I have no ideas currently..

For the record, I think any accounting experience translate well to the finance field. Kudos for volunteering.
EDIT: I would also ask a few of the more experienced volunteers within your tax group (utilize your existing networks). They may have some good leads for you. Lastly, maybe check with a few CPAs, they may have some simple bookkeeping they would let you practice on. I would wait until June to ask around though.
