Quick Tip for Success - Get Recommended for Your Volunteer Jobs on LinkedIn

I've mentioned it before, but I think it's worth repeating...be sure to post your significant volunteer roles on your LinkedIn profile. Not only does it build your positive online brand, but it also adds valuable experience to your overall career snapshot. Simply add your current and/or past volunteer roles to your online profile - then take the extra step of asking your volunteer managers and peers to recommend your work. As a nonprofit leader, this is something that I can give back to my volunteers and enjoy doing so.

These opportunities can keep your skills current and provide "experience" to fill any resume gaps.
