Donating your time and skills to local nonprofit agencies is a great way to help those who are in need in your community and to feel good in the process. But the benefits of community service don't end there with one transaction of time and service. JWU is a leader in career education, so it's important to also recognize the important role community involvement can play in your career development plans.
As you invest yourself and your resources in addressing community needs, you will learn to think critically, solve problems, assess needs, develop resources, build teams, and improve communications skills. All of these skills will make you more valuable to prospective employers and more capable of mastering any position you acquire in your industry.
