Want to Volunteer? LinkedIn Can Help You With That

Why is volunteering important?
  • You play a role in helping others
  • You get valuable work experience
  • You increase your chances of landing a job
A study from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) reports that volunteers are 27% more likely to secure a job than non-volunteers.

If you're not sure where you can find volunteer opportunities, try LinkedIn.

LinkedIn now has a Volunteer Marketplace, where you can search for volunteer postings by keyword, industry, job function, location, and experience level. You can also identify LinkedIn connections who are working with non-profit organizations so you can get their perspective on what it is like to work or volunteer at their organization.
