Volunteering in The Hague: Volunteer your way into a job (Round 2)
Are you looking for extra ways to broaden your CV? Did you know that you can volunteer your way into a potential job? Volunteering is the perfect way to boost your resume, gain some new experiences, skills and to extend your network during your time at university. More and more employers are not only looking for candidates who possess the diploma for their field, but are also placing emphasis on past experiences and skills. Universities provide great outlets for students to try out many different focuses, but what about opportunities in the “real world?” Do you feel like you are prepared for the “real world” after graduation?
Application, interview, job offer — wouldn’t it be nice if getting a new gig was always as simple as this? Volunteering can be a smart way to help you ease into the job market and provide you with the necessary support network. Many job seekers do not realize the value of volunteering for building relationships, extending their network and discovering new career opportunities. It might seem as their skills are not needed in volunteer work, or any time they spend volunteering takes away time that could be used for job seeking.
Taking time out of your own life to help others is a sure-fire way to impress prospective employers and challenge yourself too. It’s often the case that once you display your passion for the organisation and its mission, and have demonstrated your abilities, you’ll earn strong consideration when a paying position opens up that can benefit from your talents.
This presentation will help you better understand the value of volunteering for building relationships and career opportunities, as well as for gaining this valuable “work experience” all employers are looking for in new graduates.
During this presentation you will discover:
· how to leverage volunteering for career success;
· hidden career opportunities;
· strategies to adopt when considering at which organisation to volunteer;
· ways to build confidence and help the community;
