Optional Sections: Additional Experience

   This is good for students. If you've been working jobs while also being highly    involved in school organizations or other leadership commitments, you can indicate in    this section.

   For example, if you're active in a sorority, part of the school newspaper, or chair of    the school senate, this would work here.

If you're part of any academic and/or professional associations whether on campus or elsewhere, you can actually name this section "Affiliations" and include your leadership positions held, like this...

Managers want to be confident that you have enough time to work alongside all your extra-curricular activities.
