    volunteer work is always attractive to a potential hirer / employer. It is probably better to look for a recognised area for volunteering like CFA, CES, RFS or some local community stuff that local employers would be familiar with.

    If it is only for job opportunities sounds like the business is taking DP for a ride. As a business owner someone who may only have one or two jobs in their resume' can be an attractive thing. It shows stability and reliability. It is a considerable expense to train someone. It can take 6 months or more to get back the investment.

    I commend his giving spirit - it just may need to be re-directed

    It still doesn't sound right. I wouldn't want my husband giving up family time for a company that appears to be taking him for a ride. Can he volunteer with a different company to build his resume?
