I know many of our group members have extensive volunteer experience. Now there is a way to showcase your efforts in the community on LinkedIn. Read the full article to see how.

LinkedIn is adding a new "Volunteer Experience & Causes" field to profiles. The section will let users highlight and showcase their unpaid or charitable work experience.

    I thought this had always been a LinkedIn feature but, after reading the article, I see it is slightly different.

    I do notice, however, not very many people list their volunteer experiences. It makes one think volunteering is either not that common or not that valued.

    My list is ridiculously long so only the ones that are recent or mean something special to me are listed. Afterall, no one cares if I held Muscular Dystrophy Carnivals every Summer throughout my childhood, or that I helped organize a city wide "fire hydrant snow removal" project as a Boy Scout. LOL.
