While many wait for summers to build their resumes, the truth is that you can build your resume all year long. School semesters are already busy, however, by working toward your career at the same time, you will get to where you want to be faster. Here are seven ways to continue adding to your resume and furthering your career during the school year.
School can be overwhelming on it’s own, but carving out a few hours per week for a part-time internship is far worth it. Look for an internship in your area that could give you a good idea of what it’s like to work in your desired field. Whether it’s paid or unpaid, you won’t regret it when it helps get the job that you want.
Apply for leadership roles
Whether you’re already involved or wish to join new organizations, obtaining leadership roles will be an excellent addition to your resume. Apply for roles related to your career and interests; this will make for great conversation in future interviews.
Volunteer work is a great addition to any resume. Search for organizations in the area that pursue work that you’re passionate about and ask about volunteer possibilities. Not only will this improve your resume, but it will make you feel great to work for the good of the community.
