You Sharpen Your Skills and Attract Employers
Even as unemployment spikes in the country, we're seeing a surge in volunteering? What's going on? Many of us are concluding that while we're seeking a job, we want to roll up our sleeves and make a difference. Some have always wanted to have more time to give back – and now we do. Plus, that service keeps us optimistic that things will get better and primes us beautifully for our next, best job. Volunteering offers great experience, a chance to sharpen or learn new skills, and stay in the game – all increasingly desirable traits to any future employer.
