While the words “Summer Break” are usually associated with lying by the pool, exotic vacations, mountainous road trips and constant relaxation, I suggest spending the summer a little bit differently if you want to land a role with a big company someday.
Trust me, as a college student, I understand the draw to have a summer of fun while in your young 20’s, but I decided to weigh the options of my future career or my fleeting spontaneity, and I urge you to do the same.
Whether it’s the summer after your freshman year or the first few weeks post-graduation, it’s not too early to start working on making your professional resume stand out to employers. I have researched and talked with many recent grads and current students to narrow down the best 4 ways you can use the summer to your advantage. These are the top responses….
“It’s never too early to get a start on your career! Spending some time during the summer break on one of these tasks will only benefit you in the long run.”
