NORWALK - Often playing a supporting role, Margaret Killip was humbly surprised today when she was recognized for her role at the NEON Career Resource Center in Norwalk. Killip has been volunteering at the job center for several years now. Her superiors say Killip is the one-and-only volunteer, and her help is more than needed."We are a little overwhelmed," says Kimberly Hawreluk, an assistant job developer. "Being a not-for-profit, funding is limited."In her capacity as a volunteer, Killip searches for job listings, focusing mostly on entry-level positions. Killip says although many people are still unemployed, she stays confident that jobs can be found.
