Explore Dream Jobs

Have you ever been curious about working in a different kind of job? Volunteering lets you explore other possibilities. Just about every occupation and industry you can think of has a professional association, many with regional offices. Ask a librarian to show you the Encyclopedia of Associations, which also includes many community and nonprofit organizations. Librarians may also know of local organizations in need of volunteer help. Contact ones that look interesting to you and ask about volunteer opportunities. Exploring your areas of interest through volunteering can be a productive way of discovering new types of work you might enjoy.
