When it comes to searching for a new job, almost everyone thinks about building a résumé and LinkedIn profile, networking in person and online and responding to advertised positions. Of course, these are all critical elements of your job hunt.
There is another, less obvious thing you should be doing: volunteering for an organization, group or cause in which you believe. Here's why:
1. Volunteering can multiply your networking opportunities. You will come in contact with people you've never met, and yet you'll immediately have something in common with them. As you build personal relationships, there will be a natural inclination to share information about your individual circumstances and aspirations. You may well be surprised to learn who else your newfound friend knows, or ways in which you may be able and willing to help each other.
