Use Volunteering to Get a Job

Consider adding volunteer activities to your portfolio of job-search strategies. No, I don't being sure to list stuff you had to do through school or clubs on your resume (although of course you should). And I don't mean only the stuff you did out of the general goodness of your heart (although that's important).

Rather, this link suggests volunteering can be a strategy to getting a paying job. You're sitting around on your you-know-what, perhaps wringing your hands, like you've done all the networking you can through the people you know. How about targeting a volunteer opportunity that will put you in touch with more folks who might know someone who knows someone--and that will allow you to publicly showcase your goodness along with your skills through posts on Facebook, LinkedIn, or even your own blog/tweet combo?
