Frances Meegan, a Careers Advisor at the University of Cambridge’s Careers Service, says that 'unworldliness' is a complaint she hears regularly from recruiters across a range of sectors. Employers, she says, are often 'shocked by the naivety' of applicants, and a successful period of overseas volunteering can be a good way of showing you’re not someone who needs to be nannied.
Hands-on volunteering experience can also help you to establish your interests and career goals more clearly. Frances reports seeing many students who simply want to 'help'. Time spent in the field will enable you to determine more exactly how you could contribute.
