There is a nasty cycle in the job market that often seems impossible to break: you need experience to be hired, but until you are hired you have no experience. It is time to break it. Significant research has demonstrated that volunteering experience makes a person more employable which is why we have developed a system to match you with volunteer opportunities that will teach you valuable skills. You can create Social Employability Profile which allows you to subscribe to organisations and be notified of opportunities that you think will teach you something. Previous volunteers post their stories and feedback about the organisation so you can be sure that your time will be well spent. Your profile also allows you to track your contributions and accomplishments so that you can demonstrate to future employers exactly how your experience has made you employable.
