You don’t want to look back on your summer and regret your choice not to do more.
Don’t just wallow in your comfies watching Netflix series after Netflix series. It might sound appealing but the boredom will kick in. Here are a few ideas to get you going…
– Get A Summer Job
Even if it’s not linked to your career, getting a part-time job summer job will stop you getting bored, get you up and out the house AND give you a bit of spending money to do more fun things on your days off.
– Go Travelling
This may take months of careful planning and saving or you could just wing it and book last minute flights and travel for the entirety of the summer.
go for a short holiday, backpack across Europe or holiday closer to home. Any type of traveling/trip gives you experiences that shape us as humans.
Get out and explore!
Volunteering looks fantastic on your CV and believe it or not it’s not all about doing shifts at your local charity shop.
Whether you want to build schools in Senegal, work a festival or volunteer at your local library there will be a job for you. Check these sights below for a little more information…
One thing to note is that sometimes (especially in conservation) you have to pay to volunteer.
– Networking And Internships
We know that internships are renowned for being poor pay if there is any pay at all BUT it is a sure fire way to get involved with your chosen career.
There may not be a job for you once your internship is over but it may open up a great opportunity for you after. Networking will give you the potential to find work elsewhere within that industry with the people you have already met and proved your work ethic too.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
