Things a college student should do before they graduate
Whether you are in your first year of college or your last, there are a few things you should consider doing before the big graduation day.
- Study abroad: Take the opportunity to not only learn, but learn in a different place. Most colleges offer study abroad programs where they give you all the information on how to apply. For some people finances are an issue; but not to worry, that is where financial aid programs available to those students that are in a financial bind. Being able to study abroad is a great opportunity to learn things about new cultures, new experiences, and being able to do those things while still completing the credits necessary. It is a great experience for who is trying to expand their horizons and lifestyles.
- Get an on campus job or internship: It would be a great experience to get a job/internship through the campus because it moves you towards the working world and learning how to not just work on schoolwork but also balancing a job. The balance is not the only thing you will learn. Getting the experience will be a great thing to add to your resume and it shows future employers that you took the time to get a job/internship during your busy school year.
- Learn to Budget: It is really important to learn how to budget while in college. It is the time that you are living on your own without your parents. It becomes pretty important when after graduation, when some people who haven’t been cut off by their parents get cut off, are in a position that is important to be conscious of your spending habits. Doing this before you graduate is essential for the real world and the importance of learning how to budget your expenses wisely.
- Social Network: College is the best time to take advantage of social networking. Start by talking to friends, family, coworker, bosses, peers. Those will be your tickets into future jobs out of college. Whether it is recommendations or friend of a friend, it’s a foot in the door. It is definitely better to start earlier rather than later, so be sure to put forth your skills and achievements when opportunities arise. All it takes is knowing the right people and working to where you want to be to find what your future holds.
