Seriously, Holly does make some great points here. Getting in the mix is critical to nailing down that future position. Volunteering puts you front and center, gives you the opportunity to display any talent or even pick up a few new skills... if you enjoy each other's company so much, you can both participate on projects just with different degrees of difficulty. Don't plan on going that extra mile? Well then, just keep enjoying each other's company in the comforts of your cozy home!
