Great question! One of the best things you can do is make sure your resume highlights your key skills, and accomplishments. If you have a particular field that you went to school for, highlight the classes you took that could help you in a position. Another suggestion is to be prepared for interviews to put your best foot forward. Good luck with your job hunt!!

It sounds like you were lucky to have some leisure time after the demands of college! I would think about what you did with your time since graduation and reflect on what you experienced & learned that you will now apply to your career search. If you did not work at all during this time, on your resume I would highlight your coursework, projects & any work experience you gained during college. I would develop your talk track around your time and refer to it as a positive experience vs. "messing around" which indicates it could have been a bad choice or not a learning experience. I hope this helps, good luck!
