Did you know volunteering can help advance your career? Volunteering can help you gain experience in your area of interest and meet people in the field. In addition, volunteering gives you the opportunity to practice the skills employers value most in their new college hires. NACE’s Job Outlook survey reports that critical thinking/problem solving, teamwork/collaboration, professionalism/work ethic, and oral/written communications are all essential competencies.
Consider volunteering virtually with Catchafire. Catchafire strengthens the social good sector by matching professionals who want to donate their time with nonprofits who need their skills.
If you need help identifying additional volunteer opportunities this summer, the Strommen Career & Internship Center is here to help! We recommend scheduling an appointment with a career coach in Handshake to talk through your options.
