Volunteer work is also a great way to broaden your skillset and gain more experience. It can also broaden your vision as you’ll be working with people you wouldn’t normally interact with, and in some cases these people will be in poor living conditions which can allow you to reflect and perhaps set new professional or personal goals.
If you are considering work in the not-for-profit sector volunteering can present to a potential employer that you are willing to volunteer your time and have dedication to a particular cause.
You can also develop new friendships through volunteering and with people who share a passion for a cause with you.
