Let’s face it, many of us don’t know exactly what we want to do with our lives and even careers when we’re in our twenties and even thirties. Add on top of that the career of a military spouse, it is downright hard! Many of us will change jobs a number of times before we find that “right fit” or the job that makes us feel fulfilled, happy and challenged. Take it from PERSONAL experience; I have experienced this in the last year.
So my advice to you is getting involved with a nonprofit board can offer a number of opportunities to gain PR experience; event planning, serving as a spokesperson at events or meetings, social media outreach on behalf of the charity’s programs or policies, and many more possibilities to list here.
Here are some tips to help you out!
1. Find your passion.
2. Network, Network, Network
3. Make the commitment
Nevertheless, start searching the internet for nonprofit boards in your area. It’s amazing the amount of organizations out there in need of hard-working, dedicated young professionals who are committed to helping their community.
