World at Work episode 63 standing out as a student

“You do have experience. You’re getting it. You might not have done it in a professional setting, but the whole point of school, the whole point of your studying, the whole point of doing all this is to get that professional exposure to gain the skills.”

Students should never underestimate the skills they are gaining in school. As professionals, we can help them recognize ways to own it and showcase their achievements. The value of hands-on experience is undeniable, and it’s key to highlight it on your resume.

Finding your passion and expertise is vital for career success. Whether you’re exploring in high school or transitioning to a new industry, leverage your projects and experiences to stand out. As an adult, guide students by helping them see their unique value. Empower them to acknowledge their strengths and find their voice in their chosen field.
