Clubs and Their Significances

I realize employers often look for people that are motivated and committed and check it through their involvements in school. Due to this, I've been wondering on whether I should join clubs or not since I do very little extracurricular activities. Is it necessary or just nice resume padding?...

Is it ever appropriate to ask your interviewer why you were rejected for a job, so that you can improve next time?

Hi! My name is Anina and I'm a high school senior interning at CareerVillage. I've always wondered if this was ok, because when I get rejected from places, I don't know how to improve next time. #human-resources #resume...

Do companies care about extracurricular activities job candidates participated in in college?

I was just wondering how important college extracurricular activities are when companies are hiring. Some students only have time to participate in one or two activities, if even that many, but some participate in multiple activities. #college #resume #hiring #extracurriculars #job-interview...

Do you update your resume over time? If yes how often do you do?

Updating you resume would mean adding additional achievements or swapping with better achievements you have made throughout your college years. From what I know only few people update their resumes often. #college #career...

When is it time to take high school achievements off your resume?

I accomplished many things in high school, but I know there is a point where future employers, colleges, etc only care for one's endeavors in college. When would one say that it's time to put "childish" things away? #college #resume #high-school...

How important is it to include the "Objective" line in your resume?

I'm a college student with two majors, neither of which directly links up to an industry or career. With this being the case, I don't want to bind myself to anything too technical or particular. Instead, I'm looking for professional experience/internships in general. How vital is it to include...

Are sports an asset on a resume?

I'm a college student dedicated to academics and building a career, but I love sports. Would joining a club sport be worth my time, or should I get involved in a pre-professional group instead? I'm not sure that I would have time for both. #sports...
