National Volunteers Week (June 1-7)

I’ve taken some time out of my busy schedule to volunteer.  Aside from the obvious feel-good factor from giving your time to a worthy cause, volunteering has a number of key benefits for your career which make it well worth considering…

Not only is it a great way to gain practical experience, volunteering can also help you stand out from the crowd and learn practical skills which will make you more desirable for prospective employers.  I asked one of my 3 wise men, what they did at my age that made a difference not just to them but to others.  They went abroad with the Red Cross, so I’m looking into that later in the year when my work has calmed down.
