Volunteer Your Skills
– the benefits are many!
Skills-based volunteering is a great way for you to make a difference in your community while at the same time, it allows you to gain new skills and apply your current skill-set in different ways. In a recent survey on LinkedIn, 42 percent of hiring managers stated they consider volunteer work equivalent to full-time work experience. 20 percent said they’d hired someone because of their volunteer experience. These statistics clearly illustrate how beneficial volunteering can be as part of your overall career development strategy. So, whether you’re looking for work, changing fields, or somewhere in-between, keep in mind that volunteerism is good for the heart and your resume!
