How To Be Productive This Winter Break

Finals are over, and you're back home. Don't be a homebody this winter break, and instead, be productive! Here are some tips on how to be productive this winter break.

1. Apply for summer internships.

You have to start applying for internships in December/January if you want an intern position over the summer! Don't be late to the application party and start your apps! Trust me, you'll be glad you started your apps over break instead of trying to juggle apps, classes, and exams once spring semester starts.

2. Volunteer if you can.

You have a month of free time. Put that time to good use and volunteer at a nearby hospital, your local church, or at your old elementary school. Volunteering is a great way to stay active during the break, meet new acquaintances, and build your résumé.

3. Polish your resume and LinkedIn page.

Time to polish up that resume in order to start applying for summer internships. Add your current jobs, employment information, club interests, and and new leadership positions that you've held in the past couple of months. It's easier to polish it now then worry about it later in the semester.

4. Catch up on some books on your To Read list.

It's been a busy past semester. Definitely catch up on the books you've wanted to read, but just did not have time to! Now it the time.

5. Spend time with your family and friends.

You're going back to school in a couple of weeks. Don't forget to have fun with your friends and spend time with your family.

Have a great winter break everyone!
