If on the other hand you're not too interested in school and are just going through the motions, going to Binghamton might be a decent idea. You'll save a ton of money and won't necessarily hurt your financial prospects for the future. But know that your degree won't sell you -- you'll have to do that yourself -- so spend your free time wisely. I review hundreds of resumes a year, and on the occasions when I get Binghamton resumes with no work experience, no internships, no personal dev projects, etc., they go right in the trash. And anyway, if you're not too interested in school, then maybe you're not ready for college yet -- in retrospect, I'm pretty sure I wasn't.
Volunteering shows employers that you are adamant about bettering yourself and making an impact, while internships will help you acquire the skills needed. These strategies are essential for a resume with no work experience.
Writing a Resume with No Work Experience - Open Colleges
Writing a resume with no work experience can be stressful. It’s easy to assume that you simply have nothing at all to write or offer and to talk yourself out of success before you’ve even begun. However, thinking outside of the box can help you create an outstanding resume that is every bit as competitive as the resumes produced by those with more formal work experience. It’s all in how you market yourself.
