High-Value Volunteering

5

It may not pay the bills immediately, but strategic volunteering can set you up for long-term success. Try volunteering anyplace from a local soup-kitchen to a school. This may be a bit Machiavellan, but see which places seem to have fellow volunteers that may be relevant to the career of your dreams. Focus on those places and then start networking. Same goes for joining non-profit boards. They often have influential people on them and developing a relationship around a shared passion can help you when you're talking to those same people about jobs
