It’s so important to be involved in different activities during college, not only for your resume, but also to become a more well-rounded person.
Potential employers want to see variety on a resume. They want to see professional organizations, but they also want to see your interests.
Joining a professional organization like PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) is a great tool to help you network and find internships.
Also, even if you are a PR major, it’s a good idea to get involved in other kinds of communication organizations like your school’s newspaper, or television station. This is an example of becoming a well-rounded person. Potential employers will see that you are skilled in all areas of communication, and not strictly PR.
Don’t forget to join clubs and organizations that have absolutely nothing to do with your major! Play a club sport, join a fraternity or sorority, join anything that you have some interest in. College is the time to dabble in a bit of everything.
