So you've just completed a project or call on Catchafire...now what? First off, congratulations! Giving back is no small feat, and we're here to salute you. Read below for a few options of next steps for staying involved.
Spread the Word on LinkedIn
Many Volunteers like to share their accomplishments with their professional network. We've made it easy to do so by seamless integrating with LinkedIn. At a minimum, we recommend clicking on the "Share on LinkedIn" button on your dashboard to post about the project you just finished.
We also encourage you to make Catchafire a more permanent part of your profile. This way, folks know you're committed to giving back, and are constantly learning and develop your skills in the mean time! We've made this part easy: copy-paste the below bullets into your profile and be sure to fill in the blanks:
Volunteer, [your professional title or skillset]
- Assist nonprofits with mission critical projects to advance their mission and goals
- Contributed approximately [$ Impact number] through [# of projects] engagements with nonprofit organizations
- Learn more about my impact: [Link to your impact profile]
