Hey Aztecs! So it’s finally Spring Break! What do your plans include? Going home? Traveling? Well have you considered taking steps to better your stance in the career world? I know you’re thinking “This is my break and it can wait until I come back.” But the truth of the matter is the rest of the semester will surely pass you by and it may be too late to get a handle on the jobs out there. Now, I’m not suggesting that you don’t go out and catch some rays, but while you have the time try do a couple of these things:
- Beef up your resume- Make sure it is up to date.
- Volunteer- Volunteering always looks good to future employers whether it be related to your career field or just something you enjoy doing.
- Make sure your Linkedin profile is up to date and if you don’t have one- make one!!
- Use this time to do research on employers and if possible reach out to them to set up some informational interviews.
These are just a couple of things you could do over your spring break that can have a major impact on your career-related future. If you need any help with on how to get started make sure you come see us when you get back from break!
