Make your summer break productive!
The summer break is here and it is full of great opportunities! We often look forward to the holidays as we get to spend time with our family and friends. Some even travel and go on a trip, exploring a place of their choice. Since most students have at least 6 weeks for their summer break, try and make the most of it. It is a good time to develop your skills and garner some experience. Let’s look at a some ways you can utilize this break to invest in your career!
- Build your skill set: Develop your communication or your technical skills this summer! Use this time to get work-ready. Enrol for online or offline courses and workshops to improve yourself. You can work on your leadership, communication and technical skills. For instance, you can enrol in digital marketing course or upgrade your excel skills.
- Build your passion: this is a great time to rediscover your interest! Try out potential passions and follow your dreams. For instance, if a sports interest you, engage yourself in it. Not only will it deepen your passion for the sport but also develop your discipline, routine, and time-management. If you enjoy writing, you could take this time to hone and practice your writing skills. Keep a diary or start an online blog! Exploring these passions with friends can make it even more fun.
- Build your skills through internships: Many organisations hire interns during the summer break. Internships will give you an exposure to the real world and help you understand the dos and don’ts of a workplace. They also signal to a potential employer that you have some experience behind you. They will be an important addition to your resume and will help you getting a job in the future.
Apart from this, summer is also about fun! Spend some time travelling and discovering yourself. Make time to exercise to keep yourself healthy. You can also prepare for the upcoming semester and complete your pending college projects. Rejuvenate yourself and give yourself a fresh start in the new academic year!
