You can be much more than your major

During first year orientation, I interviewed several recent graduates including Jermyn Davis who was a double major in Political Science and Chinese.  Jermyn and I talked about how his extracurricular experiences played a huge role in his interviews with potential employers – much more than what he majored in.  In fact, he received many offers as a result of his extracurricular experiences and his ability to communicate his interests, strengths, skills and passions with his resume, cover letters, emails and in person.

Jermyn also encourages students to manage their time well and gives several tips on how to make the most of all that students do at Wake Forest.  Listen to Jermyn’s tips on how to become attractive to employers – no matter what you major in.  Jermyn_Davis_56k
