Lunchtime Trivia Wednesday, January 23

Q:  When considering a candidate for a job over 40% of hiring managers consider this to be equally or more important than work experience.  What is it?

A: Their volunteer experiences.

41% of LinkedIn members surveyed consider volunteer work equally as valuable as paid work experience when evaluating candidates.

1 of 5 hiring managers in the U.S. agree they have hired a candidate because of their volunteer work experience, based on a survey of LinkedIn members.

Volunteering can increase a person’s social connections and professional contacts (social capital) and skills and experiences (human capital), both of which are extremely important in our careers.
