Having a good GPA is not everything. Volunteering is a great way to build
up your resume, network with people who share the same interests as you,
gain invaluable experience in whatever career path you choose, and also to
have a positive impact in your community.
From the Career Services Center, we will have the Director of Employment
and Experiential Services, Dana Monroig, speak about the value of
volunteering when it comes to applying for grad/med school and enhancing
your resume when looking for a job.
We will also have Diana Gomez, the recruiter for Peace Corps here at UCSD.
She will be sharing her knowledge and expertise on the value of
volunteering abroad and the benefits that come with that experience, such
as loan assistance and grad school opportunities.
Melissa Matthews, the American Cancer Society Relay Corp manager for UCSD,
will present on how you can get involved in fighting cancer with Relay for
Life and other programs in California and throughout the world.
We will finish with a Q&A panel of students with lab positions who will
help explain how volunteering got them to where they are today and how it
will help in the future. There will be food and refreshments, as well as a
raffle for prizes! Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a competitive edge
in applying for a job or professional/grad school!
