Employers are looking for people who have experience, but how do I gain experience without a job?

The importance of volunteering:

  • Adds experience to your résumé
  • Provides opportunities to network with professionals and builds positive references
  • Strengthens your ability to compete with individuals that have work experience
  • Helps you to explore career possibilities by testing out a career field
  • Helps build new skills; allows you to earn academic credits or community service hours
  • Looks excellent on college applications

Make a difference in your community. Volunteering opens doors to your future. View volunteering opportunities in the City of Irvine here.
