Volunteering: Good for the Soul, Good for the Résumé

These days, it can be tough to land a great student job or internship. Still, it’s important to add substance to your resume so that you are a competitive job candidate come graduation.  It can be frustrating to see entry-level job listings that require “1-2 years experience,” but there are many ways to gain that experience aside from traditional employment.

Volunteering can be a fantastic way to add to your resume and work experiences, especially if you form a long-term partnership with an organization you care about.  Just because work is unpaid doesn’t mean you aren’t learning valuable organizational, leadership, and teaming skills.  Volunteering  also shows that you are motivated and willing to work hard, and if you do a good job, you may be able to ask the program supervisor for a letter of recommendation or to serve as a reference.

There are innumerable sites out there that can connect you with great volunteer opportunities.  Take a look at for a start, or Google a cause that’s close to your heart and look for opportunities in your area.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Many students stop by Rady’s advising office to ask whether study abroad classes can count toward their business or accounting minor. The answer is Yes! Studying abroad can be an incredibly fun and enriching experience. College isn’t only about what you learn in the classroom, afterall! We highly encourage students to study abroad through one of UCSD’s for-credit programs.

How do I get started?

Take a look at our Study Abroad Information Page for more info on how to sign up and how to apply your study abroad courses toward your minor.

Thinking About Graduate School?

UCSD’s Career Services Center is an excellent resource for students considering grad school.  Explore their resource guide for more information and helpful links. They also offer Professional and Graduate School advising, available by appointment.  Call 858-534-4939 to set up an appointment.

MBA Programs

Thinking about a Masters in Business Administration?  US News publishes a list of top-ranked programs and offers other handy tools that can help you find a program that’s right for you.  Many MBA programs prefer students with work experience, so you may want to consider working for 2-5 years before applying.

The Rady School offers a full-time student MBA program and a part-time Flex MBA program for working professionals.  Find more information on our admissions page.

What Can I Do Now to Get Ready for Grad School?

Connect with your Professors.  Attend office hours, participate in class, ask them to serve as your mentor for an Independent Study or Academic Internship Program.  You may need to ask them for a letter of recommendation someday, so practice your professionalism when speaking with them.

Beef up your Resume.  The best way to find out if you want to pursue further education in a field is to gain experience working in that field.  Regularly check Port Triton  for jobs and internships and check the UCSD Career Services Center calendar for upcoming networking and career development events.  Apply for a for-credit internship through the Academic Internship Program (can count as a business minor elective with department approval).

 Get Involved.  Gain leadership experience and connect with peers with similar career and academic interests by joining a Student Organization.  Graduate programs look for students who have had experiences outside of the classroom.

∞ Study Abroad.  Gain a global perspective and connect with students, schools and employers in other parts of the world. Find more information on Rady’s Study Abroad information page.
