Experts say giving back to the community is a great way to keep busy and it can help land you a job.
United Way has volunteer opportunities in many career fields, so you can help out while learning valuable job skills.
Volunteering can also be a great networking tool. Shelly Kaiser is the volunteer director at United Way in Wausau. She says, "Really high impact people are involved in United Way. When I look at the busy, important, and interesting people that volunteer here, I know I wouldn't know them except through volunteering."
Employment experts think volunteer work can help your resume stand out.
