More proof that joining the #LIVEUNITED movement is a good thing!

A survey found that 41 percent of employers said they considered volunteer work as important as paid work, and that 20 percent said they had made a hiring decision based on volunteer work: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/02/giving/volunteer-work-gains-stature-on-a-resume.html?_r=0

Volunteer experience is getting more attention from employers, who appreciate that volunteers are finding ways to add or polish skills through unpaid work.

The goal of the Shoebox Project is to create personal hygiene kits for people in local shelters. For some - as Jones Walker employees saw during #DayofAction - that goal is personal. #liveunited
