But keep in mind, while volunteering is about being charitable with your time or energy, it also is an opportunity to receive. Through face-to-face or other personal-touch interactions, you can build new relationships and/or garner the ear of someone who takes a liking to you and wants to help you get into that next great gig. Also, be selective where you volunteer. It is okay to consider the potential to glean new contacts when selecting your next volunteer gig.

Implemented intentionally, these 10 career trends will help to meld and mold your successful strategy.
