Community Service

 

Community service is an excellent resume builder! You are more than just a GPA number to colleges--they want to see that you are exploring your career interests as you serve your community. The website https://www.dosomething.org/ is a great tool to explore opportunities to get involved in national organizations based on your interests and availability.
