Question 4 of 25
Being a volunteer, have you ever felt your work went unappreciated?
Professional Answers Preview
"I worked as a volunteer when there was a flood in my hometown. My responsibilities included dispatching volunteers to different neighborhoods. I spent long hours for the first week making sure everyone was cared for. There were moments where I didn't feel appreciated for the long hours put in, but I knew the value of my work and how many people I was helping. So, I kept on doing my thing!"
You can be honest here. If you have found this to be a true statement, explain the circumstances and why you felt that way. It is likely that, at some point, you may feel unappreciated, so the interviewer wants to know how you will respond to feelings like that.
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"I don't necessarily look for appreciation so I would say that I have never noticed any blatant un-appreciation in past volunteer work. I do what I do for others. Not for the recognition."
Experienced Example
"I think a feeling of unappreciation can be relative. I stick to my tasks, I listen to the needs of my organization, and I help those who need it. Volunteering isn't about me - it's about my community."

Question 5 of 25
What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?
Professional Answers Preview
"I tend to be a people pleaser. In the past, I have said 'yes' before looking at my schedule, and I have overcommitted myself. Now whenever my boss asks me to do something, I let him know I need to check to make sure I have the bandwidth. This practice has saved me from taking on too much and overworking myself."
The interviewer wants to see if you the have self-awareness required to understand your weaknesses. Knowing the areas in which you can improve, is a sign of maturity. Share something that you have taken the time to reflect on. Maybe you made a mistake by moving too quickly through a project, and not paying attention to detail. Whatever it may be, show your ability to adapt and change from the mistakes or behaviors that didn't serve you in the past.
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"My greatest weakness is caring too much about the small details. It can be easy to care a great deal about the minute details. I have worked on this by ensuring that I remind myself of the big picture."
Experienced Example
"My greatest weakness is in taking control when leadership opportunities present themselves. I am not a naturally outgoing or gregarious personality. I have taken the opportunity to sign up for a free leadership skills workshop at the local library. I hope this will help me to hone my leadership skills further."

About Volunteer

January 7th, 2015

In general terms, volunteering is the practice of people working on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment for their time and services. Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve human quality of life, but people also volunteer for their own skill development, to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun, and a variety of other reasons that could be considered self-serving.
