College students who volunteer have figured out how to build their college resumes with actual work experience.  Having a meaningful volunteer assignment not only helps college students build skills, but also helps them build a professional network and explore career options.

With elections scheduled for November, both the Democratic Party, Republican Party and other community groups are looking for college students who volunteer to perform all kinds of election related jobs.  For example, candidates for election utilize all kinds of volunteer labor to staff call centers, go door to door, do marketing and help organize events to turn out the vote.
