Accentuating your skills

A few years ago my cousin, who was graduating from college asked for my help with his resume. He had done some internships but felt his experience was thin, and the job market for new grads was still quite competitive then. I suggested that he look at the skills he developed leading and motivating his high school and college soccer teams, and bring those skills forward on his resume. It's important to not just show what you learn from a job, but also what you learn from life. Maybe you lead a club, organized a charity event, made crafts to sell on Etsy or just kept some rowdy toddlers in check - the point is that you come with skills - don't be afraid to bring those experiences forward and translate them to how you would perform in the workplace!
