Volunteer Spotlight: Emily Cowdrey

Emily Cowdrey

My name is Emily and I volunteered with IT4Causes. There is often more than one event on the horizon for this organization but volunteering is easily balanced with full time work. I helped organize a volunteer extravaganza where non-profits were introduced to skilled volunteers. The attendees were featured in the shooting of a new video to promote IT4Causes. Another event I participated in was a showing of the movie Office Space at The Byrd Theater. It was fun to watch the creativity of the team in the planning of this event and the movie-goers appreciated the fun activities (like smashing a printer)! Since volunteering with IT4Causes I have begun a three year management development program with Hajoca. We are a multi-national wholesale distributor for plumbing and HVAC supplies. I will spend time in each position at the company before running my own profit center. IT4Causes helped me to polish my networking skills while job searching and was a fun and rewarding experience all around!
