Your DECA Journey is not over yet! As a high school DECA student, you learned the basics of business and you gained experience in competition. But employers don’t look at your high school resume when they are hiring for internships, they want to know what you did in college. When they see DECA and how you continued to hone your skills against collegiate members at competition, that will make your resume stand out! Connect with business partners when it really counts, to land that first internship to launch your career.
