A volunteer is someone who offers their skills and services freely to make an impact in the community. Doing volunteering work can provide volunteers a sense of purpose, find new skills, and potentially advance one’s career path. Volunteering also provides a good opportunity to meet new people and develop relationships while increase one’s social networks. Since volunteering can be a big commitment, finding the right volunteering opportunity is vital in achieving success for both the volunteer and the organization.
Although a volunteer placement might be easier to obtain in comparison to paid employment, employers will still be asking the same type of questions you would expect for any Non Profit Organization.
