There are plenty of productive ways through which you can profitably utilise your holiday and make it fun, relaxing, and supportive to your educational career and physical nourishment. It’s all about how you align your priorities and take charge of your life to achieve meaningful consumption of this holiday. Students planning to enter the permanent work force should complement their academic preparation with a range of other experiences which can be acquired through internships. Not only do you get to participate in multiple tasks, but you are given the hands-on training and feedback that empower you to leave your internship with the confidence to tackle any task at your next job.
Gaining such important introductory experience through internship will boost your CV and draw you closer to your future potential employers. Your area of specialisation should decide the type of company and field you have to join for your internship. This is the best resource available to you this holiday to gain the skills that employers look for in a college student, like critical thinking skills, excellent written and oral communication skills, the ability to work with a team, and above all, real-world experience in your field. These skills cannot be achieved by only spending time in the classroom and earning a degree, rather, you’ll gain exposure to real problems and issues that perhaps are not found in textbooks as you meet new people. You’ll also establish a network of professional contacts, mentors, and references.
Developing more competitive and employable opportunities during this period offers great potential for the future based on your performance which may ease your transition from being a student to entering the workforce faster and easy. You may get a great friend, reference, connection or even be better positioned to develop a wide range of skills ranging from time management, teamwork, leadership, communication skills and customer service. This experience will make you a better planner as you struggle to complete the job tasks expected of you which will teach you to enjoy working with other people. You’ll be accustomed to the professional world and you’ll have more bargaining power as well and a competitive advantage throughout your career life.
