A Monster Opportunity to Volunteer

Quick hypothetical: You’re a senior in college, or you’re just out of school, and you don’t have much (or any) experience as a fundraiser or grant-maker, but you want to enter the field. No matter how stellar your GPA is, you may not be able to get your dream job without demonstrating some real world know-how.

Because of our desire to give back to our communities, many FLiPs have a history of volunteering. Will potential employers look at volunteer jobs as seriously as paid positions? According to a recent article on Monster.com, volunteer experience may provide a boost to help you land that first job.

Did you get a job based on volunteer experience?
