LIVE Centre workshops
Launch your Career, Volunteer!
In this "intro to volunteering" workshop, you will learn how volunteering can improve your career prospects, help you develop skills and give you the satisfaction of contributing to your community. You will find out how and where to connect with the kind of volunteer opportunities that are most likely to help you reach your career goals. Volunteering can be a strategic career move no matter what your field of study; come find out why!
Volunteering strategically means recognizing that volunteering is an exchange. While you are sharing your time and talent with no expectation of remuneration, you can gain relevant work experience, develop critical career skills and build a network that will later assist you in your job search! Crucial to doing this successfully is the reflection and planning involved in selecting the right volunteer opportunity for you. In this workshop you will get to think about your own strategic objectives, learn how to select the best volunteer opportunity for your needs and how to present your volunteer experience in your job search.
