Leadership & Campus Involvement

While academics are vital, your involvement and leadership skills can mean just as much to employers. As you explore your interests, get involved on campus. Involvement in college is an important part of your career journey. It can assist you in exploring different career fields, making connections with other students, as well as developing your abilities to collaborate and lead.

Remember that leadership can take many different forms. Even if you are not currently in a traditional leadership position (e.g., President of an organization), you still have the capacity to develop skills by being an active member in an organization. Discussing your involvement and describing how you brought value to the organization can be incorporated into your resume as well as interviews.

There are a multitude of ways to get involved through UW-Madison. Wherever your interests lie, there is likely an organization for you. Visit the Center for Leadership and Involvement page to find out more about opportunities on campus.
