political science degrees are a dime a dozen - unless you already have hard political contacts who can get you a job or have nepotism working for you then you'll be interning (for free) for a couple of years.

Your marketable skill set seems limited in my opinion. What kind of job are you looking for, anyway? That is a big determinor of what your salary would be.

No way you would get any decent accounting job. Marketing perhaps, or journalism. You have a limited amount of experience in non profits, so maybe get into grant writing? Basically, political science is a worthless degree. Sorry to say that, but as far as a marketable skill goes, its true.

I would recommend going to and use their salary tool. That will provide you with not only salary info, but what job requirements are necessary. Good luck.

That's not a very good resume. Seriously! You should speak with your college advisors and visit your college career placement center. Spending almost 100 words on your rugby experiences is a waste of space and time.

Prospective employers want to know what you can do APPLICABLE TO THE JOB YOU WANT. What is your career objective? The most important part of your resume is missing!

Not being mean, just brutally honest with you. Please get some career advice from your professors or career center.
