Resumes

Searching for a full-time post-graduation job seems like a full-time job in itself. 

A college student getting involved on campus can be anything between a daunting task to a remarkable and gratifying experience. A club or organization should be a platform where you can express yourself, explore different interests, and incorporate your passions. 

If you have none--or just one--paid work experience and feel as if your resume is looking a bit bare, it will be okay. Don't panic! No extracurriculars either? No worries! There are still experiences to put down.

When building your resume, you’ll find that there are certain experiences that share a unique transitive factor that makes them difficult to organize into specific sections. The crossover between these sections means there is a flexibility as to how you may choose to organize your resume. The most common way I have seen this issue rear its head is in the case of living-and-learning communities.

When you’re all done relaxing and recharging this break, tackling some (or all) the items on this list is bound to help you get ahead of the game for your job search. 

1. Work on your resume. No, it’s less fun than waiting for the marshmallows to melt in your hot chocolate, but if you can get over this hurdle you’re doing your future self a huge favor.
