Well done – your exams and coursework are finished! Whether you choose to work, travel, or take a rest, here are 3 R’s to help you focus your mind over the summer:

RECHARGE: Stop. Take a moment to just relax and recharge your batteries. Resting is not lazyness. Resting is extremely important to Sharpen your saw.

REFLECT: Think about the past year and write down what you have done well; and what you may have struggled with. You may find it helpful to do this with your mentor if you have one, (if not, here is how you can get one for next year!)

REFOCUS: Clearly define what you would like to achieve next year. Remember to break down large goals into smaller ones. Need some ideas? Think about where you would like to be career-wise when you finish your studies here, then list out the steps and people who can help you. For work experience, Talent Bank applications are now open! Complete this Registration and Induction to the Talent Bank to gain access to paid part-time jobs on campus.

As always, we are here as a support! If you need a reminder of our services, simply watch our video!
