    Did the months of periodic volunteer work, learning about the place, get me ahead of the 20 other applicants?
    I'm in the non-profit arena. Lots of folks I know (inclucing me many years ago) ended up employed after already demonstrating capability, skills, and cultural "fit" through volunteer or intern time with the organizations. And whatever you know about the tasks and systems of the place gives you a head start over anybody from outside who would have to learn all the things you already know.
