The advice I'd give myself as a new graduate … Find a way to contribute to the community where you work, above and beyond your traditional job description. Community work unites everyone in your workplace toward a common goal and it can bring a profound positive change to those who are the most in need. Whether it’s forming a corporate team to participate in a charity walk, visiting a senior center, or organizing a food drive for the local food bank during the holidays, there endless ways you can contribute.
If you can make a lasting commitment to community service, you’ll find that your newly acquired knowledge and skills as a UNLV graduate will be even more appreciated by your colleagues and supervisors in the workplace.
