The Power of Volunteering providing jobs to students right out of college

By Rachel Horvath

Student volunteering is beneficial as it makes it possible for students to be prepared for a job right out of college.

When students add volunteering to a resume, it looks better to a future employer and increases the applicants chance on getting a job.

Students who volunteer, receive more job interviews and have a higher job placement rate than those who do not.

Building relationships while volunteering can give students personal links into their career fields.
