How can I get experience that looks good on my resume?

Getting experience is all about self-initiative. Start by identifying the areas you are interested in, for example clinical versus community nutrition. Once you have a general idea of what you may like to do or what population you are interested in working with, research opportunities involving this population. The “getting involved” page of this website offers great tips and strategies for this step in the process. Once you have found a position that you enjoy, stick with it. Remember, companies and schools often look for commitment.
