Make the Most of Your Career Transition – Volunteer your Skills Abroad and Develop Professionally

Make the Most of Your Career Transition – Volunteer your Skills Abroad and Develop Professionally

The term “volunteering” is often associated with a ‘hard work, no pay’ set up – this could not be further from the truth. While giving is at the core of volunteering, volunteers reap benefits as well. Skills-based volunteering, also know as pro bono, brings new experiences, from learning a new language to exploring new locales. More importantly, there is a whole range of skills that can be gained from this brand of volunteering, which can significantly benefit professional development.
