Service Learning/Volunteer Work
Volunteering is an effective and ideal way to gain work experience, begin exploring career paths, enhance your skill set, build relationships with professionals in your field of interest, and create positive change.
Volunteer work demonstrates that you value contributing to something larger than yourself, possess strong time management skills, act as a team player, and are proactive in expanding your skill set.
Do you have work study? Are you interested in doing community service and earning work study money while you do it? Contact Student Employment for more information.
Getting involved in student organizations on campus allows you to make new friends, develop new skills and abilities, work as part of a time, set and achieve goals, and gain rewarding leadership experience, which all stands out to employers.
Engaging in research experience is valuable in any major or program. Take your knowledge beyond the classroom and participate in active learning. Ask your professors if they’re currently doing research and see if you can get involved.
