If you are struggling to get a job, you might also be concerned about how to explain the career gap on your CV or that you may lose some of the skills you’ve worked hard to develop.
But what can you do to get round this?
Well, a recent survey carried out in America revealed that one of the best options open to you is to find voluntary work.
In fact, two of their key findings are that:
1. “Volunteers have a 27 percent higher likelihood of finding a job after being out of work than non-volunteers,
2. Volunteers without a high school diploma have a 51 percent higher likelihood of finding employment”.
So get out there and start volunteering, not only will it increase your chances of getting a job but you’ll also feel a whole lot more positive about yourself as well.
