One of the best ways you can improve your resume is by
adding numbers. You’re probably

You might be wondering, “What exactly ARE transferable
skills?” Transferable skills are the skills that you gain in life experiences
and you take with you to other life experiences. According to the National
Association of Colleges and Employers, the top transferable skills employers
look for include: Communication Skills (verbal and written), Strong work ethic,
Ability to work on a team, Leadership, Initiative, Interpersonal skills,
Problem-solving skills, Analytical/Quantitative skills, Flexibility/Adaptability,
and Computer/Technical skills.

You’re finally in college, and for some of you, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for and preparing for your whole life. Undoubtedly, what you do this semester will determine the rest of your time here at Carolina and will have profound implications on the rest of your life. You need to get good grades, meet your best friends, get involved all across campus, and figure out what your major and future career will be. All the while you must avoid the horrors we all know about college first years: skipping classes, unruly professors, drugs, and of course, the dreaded freshman fifteen. Pretty much, you can’t mess up this semester.
