Jobs and volunteering

<p>In applying to college would it be recommended to have job experience? Would it be alright if instead of having a job, I make up for it with a lot of volunteer work?</p>

<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Sure I guess, I don't know, work to make money, volunteer to make others happy, don't do it for college. Check out YMCA and the Boys and Girls Clubs and other smaller community centers in your city, they could also give you a job.</p>

<p>You don't need job experience as long as you have fairly good extracurricular or volunteering experience. Job experience can help, but it's not too important.</p>
