During the anxious heat of the job hunt, you may overlook volunteering in an unpaid position. But the time invested can reap large rewards -- both professionally and in terms of your own life satisfaction. Especially for people in a mid-career transition, volunteering can be an important part of shifting onto a new, more satisfying professional track.
