“Leadership experience” is something you hear tossed around when asking what employers would want to see on a resume. I can’t tell you how often I hear the words “leadership experience” from a panel, resume workshop, etc. However, there are many ways that one can develop leadership experience and it doesn’t have to be by working your way up the ranks of an already established club. Many people create their own clubs for subjects they have a strong interest in and work hard to build them up through their time in college. You can also gain leadership experience through community involvement such as organizing a community food drive or trash clean up project. I would recommend finding something that you care about or are passionate about and becoming deeply involved in it, that way it will be easier for you to gain leadership experience with something you truly care about. That being said, there is nothing wrong with becoming involved in multiple clubs/organizations just to find what you are interested in. Not everyone knows what they are passionate about. If you feel this way, then go explore all the great options USC has to offer because you might find something incredible that you didn’t even know existed! Speak to as many people as possible and try to soak it all in. I was incredibly overwhelmed for the first two weeks of my freshman year because there were so many clubs with info sessions and involvement opportunities but it all becomes manageable and you will find something you care about and want to get involved in.
