Volunteering can help build a network

From the Wall Street Journal:

From a job hunting perspective, volunteering is another form of networking — with the added bonus that an organization does reap the benefit of my time and skills. Of course, I don’t volunteer for the sole purpose of finding a job. Even though I have recently had more time to devote to volunteering, I would have dedicated my time regardless of whether I was working or not. Altruism goes beyond networking and provides its own reward.
