  Making the Most of Extracurricular Activities
   - By Ashley Collins, AgCareers.com Education & Marketing Specialist
 
 
Imagine having the answer key to every test in your hardest class but not knowing that until after the semester is over. Many college students have the answer key to developing a winning resume, or connecting with that one person who holds the key to their dream job, but they never take advantage it. If you are one of those people, this article could be your answer key.

"It's not what you say, it's how you say it," is an old adage you may have heard before. In terms of your resume, the same could be true with a slightly different spin: 'it's not what you've done, it's how you describe what you’ve done'.Successful sales people often have very effective resumes because they know how to package their experiences efficiently. For example, taking part in a study abroad program is often a single line on someone's resume. From an employer's perspective, we appreciate knowing that you've had such an experience but elaborating with a few bullets that relate your experience back to the position you're applying for or if developing a generic resume, to give your experience more validity.

ADVICE FROM THE COMPANY:

At Monsanto we value the experiences students gain in study abroad programs, career-focused student organizations and university leadership programs. Equally important is the ability to communicate how those learning experiences prepared them for an internship/co-op or first job.

Many of our positions require teamwork, leadership, sales and/or customer service experience and for many new graduates they may not think they have it. This type of experience can be identified in extracurricular activities, life experiences and community involvement.
