Boost Your Career and Resume Through Volunteering


Ginny Rehberg, a Boston-based career consultant and executive coach, has listed five ways that volunteering can boost your career and resume:
  1. You can make new contacts — so important since the majority of jobs come from networking.
  2. You can hone your ability to manage time.
  3. You can learn to influence others without possessing and exerting power, which Rehberg cites as an important skill in the less hierarchical workplace of today.
  4. And finally, the bottom line consists of great experience to list on your resume, especially important if you’ve been out of the workforce for a while.
