Volunteering during your job search can bring value in many ways. For one, it will make you feel good about yourself during this often frustrating and sometimes depressing period. Secondly, volunteering for a high-profile charitable organization can pump up your network of contacts. We all now that great jobs more often than not come from who you know. And volunteerism can then be added to your resume. Many companies today look for this active involvement in the community.
