At Work for Good, we understand that the job market at this moment is more challenging than ever. As you know, many organizations are not currently in the position to hire new staff – but of course, that doesn’t mean that they don’t have needs to fill. For that reason, we are now hosting internship and volunteer listings.

Though these positions are (typically) not compensated, they can provide you with valuable resume-building experience, plus new skills and new connections.

In addition, the current remote-work environment means that many of these opportunities may be available regardless of where you, and the employer in question, happen to be!

To find these opportunities, just make sure you check the “Intern” and “Volunteer” options under “Position Type” in the job search tool, as pictured below. (You’ll find the job search tool on the left-hand side of the screen after you click “Find a job,” located at the top of the homepage.)

We wish you all the best in this time of uncertainty, and we will continue to update our site and our jobseeker offerings to help you make the most of your job hunt.
