Work experience is critical to moving forward in your career. But did you know that you can also gain many valuable job skills through strategic volunteering? Skills like leadership, public speaking, project management, and communications help you become a better employee in any profession - and make you a more qualified and desirable candidate for your next promotion!
On June 28th, join CNM and Hands On Nashville as we delve into the many professional and personal growth benefits of volunteering in your community. During this session, you’ll learn how to identify the skills you need to grow your career and how you can match these skills with strategic volunteer opportunities through the Hands On Nashville volunteer portal.
