Getting Involved to Get the Job

(via SSS Student Mentor Kayla Etherton)...

Whenever I came to Northwest, I knew absolutely no one. It was scary but it encouraged me to get involved on campus. I couldn’t be happier about my decision to join several organizations. Northwest has over 150 student organizations, ranging from sports clubs, to Greek life, to academic honor societies. If there is something that you have an interest in, it’s likely that you’ll find an organization here to meet your needs! Not only does getting involved give you the chance to make a ton of friends and awesome memories, but it’s a great resume builder too.
The job market is super competitive right now, and showing that you were involved or held leadership positions during your time in college is a great advantage that you could have. Employers want active minds with interpersonal skills, and a great way to show that you have just that is through being an active member in an organization!
If you have any questions about how to get involved on campus or have any particular interest that you want to pursue, shoot me an email at Also, make sure to check out the link to see all of the student organizations that Northwest has to offer! Get out there and get involved, it could be just the thing that lands you your dream job.
