The Volunteer Recruiter and Interviewer assists the Volunteer Center by attending recruiting events and interacting with potential volunteers. Weekly, they will also conduct volunteer interviews, evaluating the potential volunteers and their application, reviewing areas of interest and availability. Based upon the information supplied by the potential volunteer, questions and discussions are personalized and focused on interests, background, and availability. If there are any "gaps" or red flags in the application, those are explored as well. Throughout the encounter, the Interviewer takes note of appearance, personality traits, enthusiasm, motivation and both body and verbal language to make the best assessment and eventual fit within the organization. All application information and interview notes are then entered into the volunteer management system.
