My school has arranged for volunteers to visit patients at a nearby hospital, to keep them company. This is mostly for people who want to go into medicine or healthcare, and goes onto your CV/Personal statement.
However, I am looking into going into chemical engineering, so I am not sure if doing this volunteering work would be beneficial to me, especially since I am already struggling to find the time to keep up with my schoolwork (I am doing 4 subjects). But then again, I haven't done much out of school, so have nothing like volunteering in my personal statement.
I don't know what to do Please could someone please offer me some advice? I'm in year 12 right now, so I'm not sure how hard the work is going to get later on in the year.
Should I still go?
