A lot of people think that only paid work experience belongs on a resume. Those people are wrong. Your resume can include any experiences in which you develop the skills that employers want to see. Maybe you hone communication skills as the president of a student club. You learn how to fundraise when you volunteer with the American Cancer Society. You develop leadership skills as a chairperson in your sorority. Whatever it is, it counts!
Join a club, run for student government, play an intramural sport, volunteer in the community, study abroad for a semester ... there's truly something for everyone. Getting engaged on campus is a great way to develop your skills while connecting with a community of others who enjoy the same things you do.
