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.

I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
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 have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
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.
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.
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.
