Relationships are critical to individual and organizational success. The Verified Resume is particularly useful for young talented people who do not have those important connections to get a start in the world of work. Click the text to learn more about the value that the VR provides to employers, teachers, students, and others.
The Verified Resume (Sample Script for Emailing Employees) is a combination letter of recommendation and resume. The VR, because it is verified by a third party mentor, vouches for performance. Unlike a traditional letter of recommendation, the information is structured and specific. Unlike a traditional academic transcript, a Verified Resume is a living document that changes to reflect a youth's work experience. Pre and post-observational surveys are conducted by the staff to measure youth development in the skill areas.
