Why Volunteer During Your Job Search?
It’s a Good Idea!
- Gives you something to do while waiting for your next job.
- Expands your network! You might wind up meeting someone who knows someone who gets you to a paying job.
- Helps you explore an interest or type of work you never knew existed – and find out you are really good at it.
- Re-energizes you when your job search energy gets low. Doing something to help others changes the energy you project – and that shows in interviews.
- Gives you something to talk about in your interview that explains what you’ve been doing with your time.
- Makes you feel better about yourself. When you feel good about who you are and what you have to offer, you’ll project a positive attitude that connects with people.
