Volunteer Hub will serve as a networking center for job seekers who may not require remunerations for their services and opportunities for nonprofit workforce sourcing.
The LinkedIn Volunteer marketplace aims to help the social sector by connecting talent with opportunity at massive scale according to the company blog.
It will avail non-profits relevant members of the social network who have expressed interest in volunteering opportunities. In addition, the members will now be able to browse hundreds – and eventually thousands – of specific, high-quality volunteer opportunities that nonprofits are seeking to fill.
In a recent survey on LinkedIn, 42% of hiring managers stated they consider volunteer work equivalent to full-time work experience. 20% said they’d hired someone because of their volunteer experience. So, the company's vision is to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce.
