Service Jobs and Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteering may not be what comes to mind as you search for employment, but the many benefits of volunteering are worth considering. Even if you are already employed, either as a student or as a member of the workforce, volunteer positions offer many opportunities that other areas of employment do not. First and foremost, volunteering provides an opportunity to give back to your community. Other benefits can include networking and opportunities to learn new skills, gain leadership experience, fill in gaps on your resume, prepare for graduate school, and more. In some circumstances, volunteering can lead to a full-time paid position.
Whether you intend to pursue a career for a nonprofit organization or are investigating volunteer opportunities, the links below are meant to be a starting point. Research each organization before you commit to a position, and make sure you agree with its mission and goals to ensure a good fit.
