The new LinkedIn Volunteer Marketplace gives professionals, students and other members on the networking service the chance to discover volunteer opportunities, without leaving its site.

A recent survey found that 82% of LinkedIn members want to volunteer their time and skills. What makes the LinkedIn Volunteer Marketplace unique is that it helps those who want to volunteer pair their skills with available positions, which is to the benefit of both parties, such as a volunteer graphic design position.

The Marketplace just launched today, January 15th and now, users have the chance to discover volunteer opportunities and non-profit board positions on LinkedIn, just as they would look for a job by refining their searches with keywords, desired locations or titles.
