Hi. Many posters have mentioned that they do volunteer work while looking for a job, in hopes to land a position. What type of volunteering do you do that gets you in the best position to be noticed while job hunting?
I volunteer at a free clinic at the mosque that serves indigent and uninsured people. I adore it and really feel like I've made a difference. I don't think it's helped me find a job, but it has helped me to keep my skills up and network while unemployed, plus helped keep my self-esteem up and keep me out of full-on depression. I've always wanted to give back to my community. I wish I could do more but finances are not such that I can donate anything other than my time and talents.
