It’s been a busy week thus far, between continued networking, some upcoming phone interviews, and a volunteer project I’ve been involved with.
Volunteering is good for several reasons: it’s a change of pace from sitting in front of the computer, something useful to put on the resume, and it may help develop marketable skills. Oh, and it might even provide some good to the community or environment. Let’s face it, a lot of supposedly altruistic activities have a strong component of self-interest to them, whether it be socializing, skill-building, or the satisfaction of helping others. Personally, I like going to a “job” where I can wear hiking boots and go for a long walk through some really big trees afterwards, time permitting.
