College Files: Getting Involved // What Clubs Look Good on a Resume11:00:00 AM
Hello there, collegiate! Welcome to my blog! Today we're diving into another College Files post where we explore opportunities on campus and which ones look good on your resume. As a disclaimer, I am in no way an expert on any topics, so this is solely based on personal experience and things I've learned from others. So, let's dive in!
Almost every college has some of these clubs, but for odd or small majors like furniture design, you may find it a bit hard to find something that fits you. Some of the most common clubs include Marketing Club, Engineers Club, and Economics Club. Take some initiative and do some research. If you can't find something exactly for your major maybe you can start one. (I mean, how good would that look on a resume?!)
2. Service Clubs
Employers love to see that you have clubs on your resume, but if that club also has you doing community service, that's like 10x bonus points! Some clubs that are all over the country include Key club, mission trips of sorts from various clubs, and service groups. There will definitely be varying names for these types of clubs. The one that I'm a part of is Lowenthal Service Group.
3. Clubs that have personal meaning to you
This one can be a whole range of things. The one's that particularly come into my mind that are at my campus include Colleges Against Cancer, Tigers for Tigers, and Habitat for Humanity. Although some of these revolve around community service, not all of them will, so be on the lookout for what calls your heart. Then, during an interview or a networking event bring up how passionate you are about something and then you'll truly shine your truest self.
4. Student Government
This is a big one. A leadership role anywhere looks good, but in Student Government, that's also like 10x bonus points! Student Government has several positions that you could be a part of. Look into your college or university government for more information.
Don't see your club here? Well, there are plenty more that look amazing on resumes, but I really don't know much about, There's intramural teams, debate clubs, science research groups and more. I hope you enjoyed this college file and come back for more college file posts!
