The Benefits of Volunteering

"It is a great way to develop new skills and gain valuable career-related experience while at the same time contributing to the community."

Resume looking a bit thin? Need some experience but having trouble getting your foot in the door? Consider volunteering.

Employers look favorably upon volunteer experience, especially if it's related to your field of study. There's nothing that impresses an employer more than that "I'll do what ever it takes to get valuable experience" attitude. It demonstrates that you are willing to put in the time and energy and that you are eager to learn.

Why Volunteer:

  • It will provide you the opportunity to develop transferable skills such as teamwork, problem solving, creativity, leadership and the ability to handle responsibility.
  • You will increase your knowledge base
  • It's an excellent opportunity to network and make some contacts.
  • It will build your self esteem.
  • It demonstrates to employers self motivation and a willingness to learn.
