Quick Resume Builders for the Busy Student

Having a solid resume is important after graduating college. It’s tough standing out in a sea of applicants who are all competing for the same job. But how do you build a resume when school keeps you so busy? It’s not actually as hard as you may think. We listed some quick and easy ways you can build your resume – even with a busy schedule!

Blogging

Blogging doesn’t have to be time consuming. This is something you can tackle whenever you have some free time… The schedule is yours to make! The best part? You don’t have to be in a journalism-related field to add this to your resume. The topics you blog about are totally up to you, so just make sure the content is related to your aspired career.

 

Virtual Internships

An internship might seem to be anything but quick, but holding a virtual internship can really benefit busy students. Basically, a virtual internship means you can work remotely from home. No worrying about long commutes or spending hours in an office! You can also often work on your own schedule, as long as you meet the required deadlines. Score!

Campus Reps

If you’re interested in a career in business or marketing, a campus rep job might be worth considering. As a campus rep – or brand ambassador – you’ll be responsible for spreading awareness for a particular brand. Usually this means handing out company freebies and simply getting the word out about why it’s so awesome. Easy!

 

Contributing

Did you know that you can get your work published, even if you don’t have much experience? If you’ve got a knack for writing, online publications like HerCampus, Spoon University, and The Odyssey publish articles written by student contributors. It’s pretty awesome!

 

 

Volunteering

Volunteering is a quick resume builder because you might already have some volunteer experience under your belt! If not, no worries – many schools offer opportunities to volunteer right on campus.

 

Joining a Club

Getting involved in clubs on campus looks great on your resume. They don’t take up all that much time, either. Most clubs meet either once a week or biweekly, and they typically meet during times when no classes are going on to avoid scheduling conflicts.
