Get experience in a real life situation
When looking at careers and career development, all too often students only consider academic elements in respect of their goals in respect of personal and professional development and employment prospects. However, statistically candidates who can back up their academic qualifications with real life "hands on" experience are far more likely to be successful in their search for gainful employment and career
Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial gain. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, and is often intended to promote goodness or to improve human quality of life. Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served. It is also intended to make contacts for possible employment.
