Productive Ways to Spend Your Summer Vacation.

Summer holidays are around the corner, and I am sure students are the ones who desperately look forward towards summer holidays. The best part about summer holidays is that, they are quite long and you can plan something worthwhile.

It’s true that the sun is shining bright and it’s not the best time to spend outdoors therefore one deserves a small break to the hills maybe for a couple of day, but what about the left over holiday. Well below are some of the ways to make full use of summer holidays in the best possible manner

Productive Ways to Spend Your Summer Vacation.1. Take up a summer job-India is at full boom and there are quite a few places which are in desperate need for youngsters who are willing to contribute few hours towards their work. If you wish to make some money along with gaining some experience then there are many opportunities in the F&B segment. There are many fast food joints as well such as Mc Donald, KFC, and Pizza Hut etc. which offer part time jobs to students during summer holidays.

  1. Join A Part Time Course-Another excellent option to make full use of your summer holidays is to join a part time course such as a computer course or a language course which would in future help you in getting you a job. There are plenty of poly technic courses as well which are not only job oriented but are of very short durations.
  2. Pick up a hobby-If you have been struggling to take out time for your hobby then make use of your summer holiday. Hobbies such as singing, dancing art and craft are not only satisfying but can also promise you a career in the long run.
  3. Develop some skills-Now a days the industry is fast evolving, which is making your old skills redundant. You would be surprised to know that something which you were proud of, is no longer in use. Therefore research what skills are in demand and try and build those skills. There are many short term IT courses which promise a lucrative career, are offered online as well as institutes. It’s not a bad idea to go through the skills which you developed in the past and brush them over.
  4. Volunteer in a NGO or for a social cause-Working for a social cause looks amazing on your resume. Find some NGO which are in need of volunteers and invest some time serving them. Most NGOs do not pay but are happy to provide with you with a certificate which holds great value. Not only it helps you develop some essential skills but is very rewarding otherwise.
  5. Socialise-If none of the above impresses you, then do some fun activities with your family and friends such as water sports, rock climbing, camping and glamping. Meeting family and friends would help you in link building and develop your social skills which would help you in the future while you are looking for a full time job.

Role of an Enriching Internship Experience

Gone are those days, when getting a lucrative job was a cake walk. All you needed was a degree and there were widespread jobs in front of you. Today due to extreme competition, employers are looking to hire people who are experienced and are ready to take a challenge. Nobody likes to hire somebody who needs to be spoon-fed and trained for a lengthy period of time. Therefore it is expected that when a fresher joins his first job, he is already well aware of the norms and ethics of the corporate sector and is trained enough to start delivering from the very first day of his joining.

This may sound very competitive but is indeed true. The big question is where to get this exposure even before your first job, and the answer to this question is very straight forward and that is internship and trainings, which a student is expected to undergo during the tenure of their course. Many undergraduate and post graduate courses have an essential 2-6 months training or internship as a part of the curriculum where a student is supposed to work in a formal setup in order to get some industrial exposure. Even if this isn’t compulsory, we’d advice everybody to opt for an internship while studying.

Following are many advantages of undertaking an internship:

 Are Internships Important

  1. Get a taste of the corporate world even before actually starting the journey, because stepping into the corporate sector can be very daunting. Life at college and life at work is polls apart. Little do we know about the culture and ethics of the workplace while having a happening college life? Hence, an internship is a great time to learn about body language, dressing style and also how to communicate.
  2. Rediscover yourself, your negatives as well as strengths. You might be the topper of your college but things are quite different when you actually step into a formal workplace. You will then get to know your true strengths and weaknesses. It is during your internship when your mistakes would not cost you as much and you can work on yourself.
  3. This is an opportunity to socialise and network. In today’s world when there is widespread competition, it is very important to showcase yourself. Therefore internship is the best time to showcase your strengths by socialising with people of stature and building links which would come handy while you apply for a full time job.
  4. Build a stepping stone to a flourishing career. If you work hard and prove it to the organisation that you have the required skills during your internship then you can definitely reserve a position for yourself in the organisation. On the other hand, a particular role might seem to be quite interesting, but when you actually get on to do it you might realise that its not your cup of tea. Hence internship can show you the real picture which will help you make a right decision.
  5. Make some money! There are several companies who are willing to pay a stipend during the course of internship to keep the motivation of the trainees high. So it’s a great way to motivate yourself along with some serious learning.

How is College Exam Preparation different from School?

College is that time in a person’s life, which is a right combination of hard work as well as fun. However many students become too relaxed and do not take studies and curriculum seriously as they did during their school time. However it’s the duty of the students to realise that these lectures are as important as the classes which they used to have in school.

College is that time when students can easily get distracted and not focus on studies.  Little do they realise that this carefree nature can cost them a lot during their final exams. Therefore it is advisable to balance their social life and academics wisely.

College curriculum is vast and is very important when it comes to career choices and if not taken seriously can pile up and can become a major problem if proper attention is not paid during the academic year. Following are few of the ways by which a student can ease the pressure and formulate a proper technique to come out with flying colours:

How is College Exam Preparation different from School

  • Attend Your Lectures Regularly- Attending lectures regularly goes without saying. It might sound very old fashioned and boring but the fact is that college professors are very knowledgeable and you can extract the most of their knowledge by attending their lectures and classes regularly. Hence, bunking classes should be avoided completely because even one missed lecture can be very costly. You will lose track of what was being taught in class and eventually become very uninterested in the subject altogether, which will affect your final score!
  • Complete Assignments On Timely Basis– If you get assignments, just like you used to get homework during your school time, then regard yourself lucky. Take those assignments seriously and make sure that your lecturers mark them because these assignments will make you revise what you studied in class, hence helping you master the concept.
  • Minor & Major Assessments– There are regular assessments which take place in college, these assessments may or may not be counted towards your final exam score but will definitely provide you an idea about your weak points and will also help you prepare for your final exam. These are your testing grounds, take them seriously.
  • Pay A Visit To The Library– Hanging out with friends, watching movies, shopping etc. is a very vital part of college life but make sure to take some time out and visit the library. It is wise to borrow important reference books ahead of time and take photocopy of important questions & concepts beforehand as during final exams, you might be too preoccupied.
  • Socialise With Seniors– It’s a great way to enjoy college life by befriending seniors, not only do they know all the hang outs but they also have all the experience about the exam pattern. If you share a good reputation with your seniors then you can also ask for the notes which they referred during their times. They can also guide you in the final year while finding placements.
  • Refer To Past Year Papers– The easiest way to gain confidence is to refer to past year exam papers, as this way you can derive some pattern of questions year after year. By refereeing to the past year exam papers you can manage your time and devote more time to topics from where the actual questions come from.
  • Take Midterm Exams Seriously– As mentioned earlier, it is wise to take your midterm exams seriously. This will not only help you prepare for half of the course but will also pin point areas of improvement. It acts as a reality check and provides you time to brush on topics which need more help.
  • Clarify Doubts With Your Lecturers– Once you get marked on your assessments and mid term exams, it’s wise to get back to your mistakes and clarify concepts which you got wrong and simultaneously practise those concepts which require attention.
  • Prepare Notes– College curriculum can be vast unlike your school curriculum where only a single text book will suffice. In case of college exams you would have to refer to multiple notes & reference books and prepare notes which are relevant to your curriculum. Therefore preparing notes it not only reduces your efforts but also provides everything at one place for your exams.
  • Keep Photocopies And Important References Handy For Last Minute Preparations-Like mentioned above, make sure to pile up and file all the photocopies and hand held notes in one file so that they are handy when required and can be easily referred to.
  • Group Studies Help- The best part about college exams is that you get ample time for preparations alongside. Therefore you can make use of group studies. If you happen to reside in a hostel with all your other classmate then it is even better to invest time in group studies, this not only increases your confidence but also you get to learn a lot from your peers’ mistake. It saves a lot of time and keeps you at pace with your class mates.
  • Understand The Pattern Of The Exam- Make sure to follow all the updates which are provided by the administration. Make sure that there is no change in the curriculum and also take note of the marking scheme. It is wise to keep track of all the reference material double check your exam dates and date sheet.
  • Build Confidence For Practical Exams– If there are practical exams, then it is vital to be very confident about the practical examinations. Remember to clear all important concepts with the teacher and also make sure that you have all the desired apparatus and stationary which would be required to perform the practical.

Preparation for college exams may be a little different from preparation for school exams, therefore it is wise to start your preparation well on time and do not leave any scope for last minute preparation as it can lead to stress and silly mistakes.
