Making a Difference through Community Engagement
The key to your dream job does not just depend on advancing your academic knowledge and interning opportunities, but in gaining memorable experiences that give you a competitive advantage. Through community service, you can distinguish your resume experience and make a positive impact in your community. ASUCR and the Career Center understand how important this is and have partnered to assist you in finding the right volunteer position.
Log into UCR Handshake and click "Jobs" on top of the page. You will need to click on "Filters" and "+More" to find volunteer information. Internships, part-time positions, and Work-Study jobs with non-profit organizations may also count as community service base on the types of services you will provide.
