Dedicating your time to a social cause — while benefiting other people, groups, or organizations — can also help you find and land your dream job. Through volunteering, you can develop the valuable transferable skills and gain the critical experience you need to break into the job market while making your CV stand out.

Mark Horoszowski, co-founder and CEO of MovingWorlds, joins Devex for an exclusive webinar looking at how your social good experiences can help advance your career. MovingWorlds is a global platform that helps people volunteer their expertise with social impact organizations around the world, and Horoszowksi has years of experience helping individuals pursue their interests and work toward their career goals, while creating positive social impact.
