You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>

It is a way to differentiate yourself from the multitude of people in the world who do not have interests beyond themselves. I have had a good time with volunteering on open-source software projects. The more useful you show yourself to be when there is no immediate money payoff, the more likely you will look like a person that managers would like to hire.

Any work that you are doing to share your time and expertise is useful for your resume and profile. Be specific about how you online volunteer experience could be useful to your career/field of interest. By volunteering online, you also show that you are active online and savvy about supporting organizations in new and innovative ways. However, don't limit yourself to online volunteering. What it doesn't really do or show is how well you work with others.

Hi Kartic,


Virtual volunteering is a great way to build your skills and strengthen your résumé. By finding a virtual service project that complements your interests and skills, you can take control of your professional development. Additionally, these projects help build your skills, résumé and professional networks.


As a virtual volunteer, you’ll also be showing potential employers that:


You’re self-motivated.
You have good time management skills, since you set your own schedule.
You can commit to and finish a project.
You’re comfortable communicating in written form since email is the primary form of interaction.


Virtual volunteering opportunities aren’t just for the computer-savvy. Organizations are in need of all kinds of help. You could look up news articles about a certain topic, you could write thank you letters to donors, or you could create logos for marketing materials. If you have the expertise, you could help design and maintain a web site, write grant proposals, or program web applications or software.

Good work!
