Number one benefit, if you are between jobs – job hunting – volunteering fills the unemployment gap between jobs on your resume. Prospective employers tend to frown on those long-termed unemployed.

“New research from CareerBuilder found that 85 percent of hiring managers and human resource managers are more understanding of employment gaps now than they were pre-recession. While that’s refreshing news, it comes with an important caveat: This group still needs to go another step to draw attention to their resumes.”
