Why you should volunteer

Contributing to a group or a blog is a great way to develop your professional identity. When your peers (and potential employers) get to know you – what you stand for, your interests and your expertise, you are more likely to better connect with others at networking events and engage in meaningful conversation. People will remember you. Being actively involved and engaged in the profession demonstrates your commitment and desire to learn.

Plus, if you chose to volunteer with SNGG, as a group member you will:

  • become part of a national group that is passionate about assisting new information professionals in their careers;
  • organise and facilitate a wide range of social and professional events;
  • establish and expand your professional network by liaising with the professional community.
  • Plus, you can add the role to your resume/ CV and demonstrate your active engagement in the profession!
