Plus, on-campus jobs are a great way to get involved at your school and are awesome networking opportunities.

Tutor students

Tutoring other students shows great leadership and communication skills. It also takes a lot of patience and requires you to know the subject you are tutoring forwards and backwards. If you are good at math, tutor other students in math! Great at English? Proofread other students’ research papers! Not only does this look great on a resume, but you get a great sense of accomplishment from helping others succeed! I am forever grateful to the math tutor who helped me crawl my way through calculus.
