Find a new interest: If you try different things you are more than likely to discover something that you love, like a new hobby or interest or even career. There are so many volunteering opportunities out there such as charity work, gardening work, working to name but a few.
Make fantastic contacts: Volunteering is a great way to meet people with shared interests, who you might learn from or who could act as a referee when you apply for work. If you are really lucky, those who you volunteer for might see you as a potential fit for any upcoming full time jobs.
Learn new skills and put them on your CV: Learning new skills is a big part of volunteering and these can not only help you when looking for work or when being interviewed, but you might be able to use them outside of the workplace too.
Help people: Remember that volunteering has one big purpose, to help people. Every step above is very important to developing your career but it is always helpful to remember that no matter what kind of volunteering you are doing, you are helping out. Whether it be a charity shop or local gardener for a community centre, you are contributing to the success of these places.
Build your self esteem: Volunteering can prove to potential employers that you can work well with new people, are adaptable to new working environments, are driven and able to complete the jobs you are responsible for.
