Volunteering can definitely, increase your chances of getting your dream job. You don’t have to always work for pay. If you think your paid job doesn’t offer you a chance to try out some of your ideas or to do the kind of work you want to do, volunteer. Either start your own independent projects (and blog about them) or find projects by doing a search on the web or try approaching a non-profit that has an opportunity you need. You don’t need anybody’s permission to volunteer and do work that matters. There are plenty of opportunities out there so, you don’t even have an excuse to say ‘I don’t get to do the job I want to do’.
Volunteering is a great first step to an actual paid job at a later point of time. It indicates that you have initiative and passion and your future employer is going to love you for that. The only thing that’s standing between you and your dream job is your willingness and drive.
