How Strategic Volunteering Can Help You Find A Job You Love

23, Oct, 2023

There are plenty of reasons to volunteer, but one you might have overlooked is to help your career path. Besides the obvious reason of building skills related to professional development, there are other, subtler benefits. 

This article we’ve found from A Portland Career explains what those benefits are. It points to using volunteering between jobs to show you’re staying active and sharp, and to possibilities for networking with others who could help you land the work you’re after. 

You might also need to poke around to find that connection between strategic volunteering and your career pursuits. The article provides directions for doing this too. These include approaching targets directly, or volunteering for a professional association. (ASET happens to have a comprehensive volunteer program of its own you could start with.)
