Networking and Volunteering *RR
Monday, January 8, 10 am
There is a way to improve your job prospects and keep your skills sharp at the same time—volunteering. Non-profits need your professional skills to help them run the “business” side of their enterprise. In turn, you can give back to the community, meet new people, and build relationships while keeping current. Presenter Jack Wang is the former Program Site Director for Jericho Road Project of Greater Lowell and a financial planner.
