Pro Bono Work

by vegatecgroup In reply to The value in volunteering

I have done probono work in the past, but found that it did not make one bit of difference on getting subsequent work. In fact, it had a reverse affect on me. I had people calling me up and expecting me to work for free because I did work for an associate free of charge. I stopped this practice very quickly. Unfortunately, there are too many companies out there looking for the freebie or as cheap as they can get it. I stay clear of those businesses, although it is not easy, since there are so many.

Volunteer work

by JOwen In reply to The value in volunteering

I am currently trying to start a volunteer position for a boys and girls club in wisconsin. A network administrator at the school i am attending hooked me up. So now me and him are going to get work on this together. If you want I can keep you up to date on how things go.
