I have just returned from two years of teaching abroad in China. I am now working on a post baccaluarette program and want to continue on into a masters program. However, I am thinking of getting a job first, and doing the work/masters route. However, I have applied to a few companies, 15-20, and haven't heard back from any of them. Is teaching abroad hurting my chances or is it not an entirely bad thing. My undergraduate program was in Communication and my post bac. is in Healthcare Administration.

I've worked hard to organize my friends to camp out for tickets and make sure we got front row seats. We always have to work around everyone's class, work, and club schedules to make sure our tent was manned. I know this isn't an official or traditional extra curricular effort, but I learned a lot about scheduling and managing a large group. I even had to do "opposition research" to make sure we beat other groups to be first in line. Is this appropriate to discuss during interviews? Maybe even include on my resume? If so, how should I best frame this?
