If you have been following over on Twitter [ and you should! at http://twitter.com/canayjun ] – then you know that I am in the middle of a job search – primarily in the non-profit industry, organizations making an impact on helping people who are experiencing homelessness, poverty, marginalization or recovering from disasters.
I’ve been fine tuning my LinkedIn profile and received quite a few recommendations from former colleagues. Here’s one of my favorites so far:
Andy successfully inspired broad spectrum community participation as the street outreach Community Development Coordinator at Project417 – Ekklesia. Andy’s writing, public speaking, scheduling and community liaison skills in addition to his commitment and dedication to the “Sandwich Run” program of Ekklesia Inner City Ministries were instrumental in developing a strong and dedicated army of volunteers and team of volunteer leaders. Many of the leaders and volunteers that became involved with the Project 417 program under Andy’s leadership remain in place today. I am one of them. His guidance was always heartfelt and trusted and his compassion for the plight of those less fortunate provided inspiration that resonates with volunteer groups and leaders to this day” June 9, 2011
