Hi there- I personally think it's worth joining and participating in a club, if you have the time. Having been involved in resume review and the hiring process in my recent jobs, I know that many supervisors do take notice. If you find an organization that you're intrigued by or interested in, it's worth giving it a shot-- nothing to lose really! If you can find a volunteer opportunity or internship that's not directly affiliated with your college, then go for that instead-- there is great value in that too. Overall, the objective is to be able to show that you're a well rounded and curious person! Maybe that's through a club or other outlet.
