WHY VOLUNTEER?

From the Financial Post :

 4 Reasons Volunteering May Help Your Career”

  1. Networking:  According to the Financial Post, “Networking” is the term job hunters love to hear.
  2. Increased Knowledge: A volunteer is exposed to a “plethora of new knowledge and experience as well it gives the individual opportunity to learn how other people and other areas of the community outside of their day-to-day activities operate”.
  3. Give Your Résumé Some Leverage:  Volunteering shows an interest in doing new or different things and a willingness to learn.  You may gain experience in a field you are interested in before you make a career transition
  4. Fulfillment: Volunteering can take your mind off your day job.  The reward is the sense of accomplishment plus the joy one gets just from helping someone else.vOLUNTEER
