Want to see if a volunteer network could benefit you? Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Outside of work, where am I involved?
- What is the list of people that I could call today for a favor or introduction?
- Could the leaders of organizations for which I volunteer serve as a reference for me?
- Have I tracked the impacts of my volunteer service/projects? (this is a BIG one, and I'll go into more detail in an upcoming blog post)
By looking at the individuals in your volunteer network, you greatly open up your networking possibilities. It's never too late to start - find a volunteer opportunity that fits (strategically) with your goals and utilize that opportunity to expand your possibilities.
