5. Build your Resume on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a very powerful platform to build your resume and connections in the job industry.

College is a great time for you to learn more about building an online resume on LinkedIn and to start beefing up your experience.

Volunteer experience at college can also be added to your resume as important transferable skills from college to the job force.
