...and some more Things
Career Corner: Work Portfolios and Personal Websites
An important part of getting an internship or job in Tech, Data and Analytics is demonstrating your technical proficiencies. This is done by including development projects on your resume - projects from courses, group assignments, volunteering and personal ideas. 

You should describe your projects on your resume, with attention to what you developed, how you did it (tools, languages, team size, functions) and what the app’s objective/primary function is. 

You can show your projects in other ways too! 
Store your projects and work samples on GitHub, and link the page on your resume. (Note: some courses will request you do not put project code online - check with your TA or professor). 

Many CS Students also choose to make personal websites to showcase their skills and projects. Your personal website becomes a work sample in itself of your front-end programming skills. You can link your personal website on your resume, and even describe it like your other projects.
Want to advertise your event? Email Madeline at madeline.juillard@wisc.edu with the title, date, time, location, and a short blurb. Please send events by Sunday night.
Want to share your experience with an internship, study abroad, a student org, or anything else you think your peers might be interested in? Email Madeline at madeline.juillard@wisc.edu with the details!
