Get an Edge on Your Job Hunt!

Hello Hofstra students! First, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Kaitlyn Riley and I am the new Graduate Assistant at the Career Center! I am so excited for this opportunity and am looking forward to meeting many of you during The Career Center’s quick question hours! Speaking of new beginnings,  I don’t know about any of you, but I often find myself looking forward to the start of a new school year.  Not only does September bring the chance to start fresh academically, but also to explore new challenges and opportunities. You may be thinking, “WHY would I add more to my plate?” Well, the answer is simple: to build your resume.  In today’s competitive job market, simply completing a college degree will no longer set you apart from the thousands of other college graduates entering the job market. That being said,  it is extremely important to be a well rounded individual and build your resume as much as possible during your college years to make yourself stand out to prospective employers. This article offers some great examples on how to do just that!
