Volunteering is Good for your Career!

Volunteering can do more for you than helping you learn new skills, developing a broadly based network, and at the same time giving you a warm, fuzzy feeling of doing good in the world.

This article from LinkedIn suggests that hiring managers care about your service activities, and may even choose to take a closer look--or even hire you--because of the causes you are committed to helping.

Clearly, it's worth your time not only to do the volunteering, but to promote your activities in that part of your life using the same attention to detail (vigorous, accurate language) that you would for job activities.
