Active approach

Posted: Sunday, February 19, 2006

With graduation closer than many might think and graduates scrambling to find the perfect job to go to, Mike Cubbin, dean of career services and student affairs at DeVry University in Florida says creating the perfect resume may be easier than you once thought. "Look for activities you've been involved with, such as projects or presentations that demonstrate 'soft skills' like communication and leadership skills or your ability to work effectively with a team. Use these items as talking points on your resume. Too many students don't take into account all that they have to offer a prospective employer."
