I know that most Croats immediately wave their hands at the word volunteering and that it does not occur to them to work “for free”. But if you are a student, have no experience or are unemployed then you should definitely volunteer. There are several reasons: from meeting and connecting with people, connecting with a future employer or people who can recommend you to a future employer, to gaining such important work experience.Imagine yourself in a situation where you are hiring. You have two applications on the table, both people with the same degree, one has no work experience, while the other person has volunteered and has experience in organization. Which person will you hire? Of course, a person with work experience. By the way, employers in America are extremely looking for new employees with volunteer experience, and this positive trend has been accepted by employers in the EU.Experience and work habits certainly give an advantage over others without any experience, regardless of education level. And here are opportunities for all students and unemployed people who may want to change their profession and life.Toru of Croatia is looking for volunteersThis year’s edition of the international cycling race Tour of Croatia will be held from April 17 to 22 in 6 stages throughout Croatia, and details along the route will be revealed soon. to enable those interested to meet cycling stars, become an important part of the race and gain a unique insight behind the scenes of this complex sporting event.
