I"m working on job asks asks for "list professional, trade, business or civic activities and offices held excluding groups that name or character of which indicate race, color, religion, sex, national orgin, disability, merital or veteran status, height, wight or age."I"m not real sure what they mean by that. if it said orginization or group i think maybe i could say comptia, ISOC, invernessgangshow.net, not sure though. I also did some volenteering at ewaste recycler, but they closed, it"s still something i care about, and try to do what i can personaly, but don"t know could use that either then.

I"m guessing something along the lines of "Former chairman of the Society of Paraplegic African American Women in IT" would be something they don"t want. 

Were you ever on PTA or a Editor of the college newspaper? Stuff like this gives them a feel for who you are and what you care about, and if you are proactive in your business or civic invernessgangshow.net.

Ok. I don"t really think so then. I have various comptia certs, so am member of that, i joined ISOC (free member), Was in Phi theta kapa during college, high school i was in engineering club where we built underwater ROVs then competed in NOAA"s mate compititions. I volenteered at computer recycler during high school untill they closed mid 2010. I"m guessing only one of those at least from what you said i should count is possibly Phi Theta Kappa, i never had opertunity to do much though, as my induction was like month before i graduated. Went to a few meetings, that was about it, then i graduated, and that was pretty much last thing i got to do with it.


Basically they want to know if you are involved in anything else. Why? Perhaps you fulfill a role within a civic or professional society which can benefit them or that they support. Or it can be used to show experience which may separate you from other candidates.

Plus it shows that you are involved in something.


I get kind of why they ask, but find wording a bit odd. I don"t know if i could count a group like posibly Phi Thetta Kappa, because it"s more a group, and i"m not sure would really count as a professional, buiness, etc activity.


Yes it counts. The honor society right? It shows that you met a certain non-discriminatory policy (specifically in regards to their requests) and you met a certain qualification in which to join. It is a recognized organization. I would include it, especially if you were/are some kind of officer within the organization, even at a local level.


Ok, kind of what i thought. I was only in briefly as student for the few months since i was inducted. Then i graduated, and couldn"t really do anything with after that. I think comptia may count too as need some cert(s) usally to get in that. I recently got my cisco CCENT I don"t know cisco is like comptia that get cert you get member in some group. Also what about something like MS Virtual academy?

Definitely note the e-waste recycler volunteering, particularly if you got a title, was recognized, won an award, etc.

They are looking for achievements and character qualifiers that are not from a job. E-waste recycling says that you are a conscientious tech with integrity, who doesn"t isolate work problems from global issues. It would impress me, and even if they don"t have a clue what it is they might ask you about it, at which point you just let your passion bubble up (professional bubbles). Passion communicated well is very attractive.
