Volunteering to Test the Waters
Anyone, from a soon-to-be college graduate to a seasoned career professional, needs a polished, well-rounded resume. If you anticipate looking for a job in the near future, you will need to find a way to differentiate yourself from the pack. One simple way to increase your experience and make a difference in the lives of others at the same time is to volunteer. Even just a few hours a week or month can have great impact.
Not only will you learn new skills, but you will be able to practice them in a real-world setting. Some volunteer positions offer opportunities for public speaking, sales, technical skills, or financial management. You may be able to pick up a new language or computer skills as well. It is also a great way to explore new career options without having to make a long-term commitment. Whether you are just starting your career, or looking for a change, volunteering in a field you are interested in is a great way to test the waters.
Finally, there is nothing that beats personal and professional contacts when job searching. You will meet many people that can be in a position to either offer you a job or recommend you based on your performance at your volunteer position. You will also have some inside knowledge of upcoming opportunities and who to contact when you are ready to be hired.
