Student organizations and certifications allow students to:
- Explore an interest or area of study
- Serve in leadership roles on campus
- Earn career-specific certifications
It is important to develop networking and leadership skills, and to participate in resume-building activities before entering the job market. Involvement in a student organization and/or earning a professional certification is an excellent way to develop your skills, business acumen and credentials. Active participation will not only improve your skills, but it will help you build a network that can be extremely beneficial. In addition, your involvement signals to potential employers a commitment to your profession.
