So due to mental health issues I had throughout college, I was never able to get any type of extra curricular experience. I have no internships, research, volunteer hours, and I've also never had any type of job. I'm going to be graduating with a degree in public health in fall 2020. I'm starting to get better and want to finally get experience after I graduate. How do you think I should start and what types of things should I do. I obviously would need to take some gap years, how many do you guys think would be enough to have a good amount of extracurricular experience. Also with the pandemic, I guess some things will now be delayed so I'm not really sure when I will be able to do them. I'm been thinking about this website called Crisis Text Line, which is a remote volunteer opportunity to get 200 hours of experience in a year, I guess this would be my best choice for starting out i'm not sure.
