Go Pro-Bono!!

That's right. Just like everyone is going "go-green," it may be time to go "pro-bono." Why? Because its not all about the money. Well..OK, but it shouldn't be.

For those of you who don't know what pro-bono is, its when you do something for free; volunteer work.

And if you haven't guessed it, I have gone pro-bono. Its only temporily, but it is something to do for now. At first I was hesistant to do it, because I was really hoping for a job. But then one person I talked to said its good to do something like this. It shows that you care about the community and want to give back, and future employers will see that.

As I thought about it, like anything else, you will get to learn things and for those who don't have a lot of internship expereinces, this is a good way to start. Plus the hours are felxible and you can still continue to look for a job.

TIP of the BLOG: Try volunteering. We are fortunate to have what we have and we should give back.
