As we know, to a land the job you want after graduation you need more than just a degree. Volunteering gives you an opportunity to practice the skills you’ve been learning at uni, build connections and put real experiences on your resume.
We know that when you’re at university you hear STACKS of stories from beyond … and you sometimes get mixed messages from your friends who have made it into the ‘full-time world’.
As important as it is to grow up competent and independent, able to figure things on your own (something I like to preach about a lot) ... It is also equally important to be smart and ask for help and advice when you need it.
With heaps of conflicting information flying at you on the ins and outs of what makes a perfect final year - it can be hard to decide what is best for you.
We live in an impatient world and I feel like whilst everyone wants a mentor ... that comes with the expectation of instant gratification, and if you can't satisfy the expectations upfront ... then you are not seen as valuable.
What can you do to get the most out of your day and how can you ensure that the time you invest in yourself today, will have the best impact on your long-term goals in life?
When you are studying, your degree feels like the world. Your everything. But have you considered that perhaps there is more that needs your attention?
