Although it is unpaid, pursuing volunteering work can be a great way to gain new skills and experience one would not otherwise be given the opportunity if it was a paid job.
An employer may not want to hire someone because they lack of skills in a certain area or experience in an industry. This can certainly make it very difficult to secure employment.
Although there some organisations that set up volunteering work in a variety of industries and this may certainly be a great idea to look into. Volunteering work is a great way not only to gain new experiences but can also be great to put on your resume. Some employers are even happy to provide a letter of testimony that explains what they individual did and how well they performed.
