“Voluntary work, although lacking monetary reward, offers long-term benefits that far surpass money. Volunteering can build your reputation for being a caring person with a strong work ethic. According to the Timebank website, 73% of employers would prefer to hire someone who’s served as a volunteer!” [www.ehow.co.uk - advantages voluntary work]
