committed. If you put in some serious effort, it can open a lot of doors!


Volunteering…


Alternatively, you could do some volunteer work. Why not do some charity work or volunteer in a ‘summer school’ as a teaching assistant? This will really add a sparkle to your CV and show any future employers that you’re keen and committed.


Get a job…


If you’re just looking to raise some cash, there are plenty of short-term employment options. Try and get something which relates to your long-term career interests, but if this isn’t possible, you could do some bar work, restaurant work, retail work, market research or telesales. There are thousands of ways to earn some good money! It’s always nice to have a bit of extra cash at the start of the next term too!


Extra study…


Of course, it’s important not to forget about your workload altogether. Ask any lecturer and they will suggest further reading that you can do. You can do this alongside anything else you do over the summer. There’s always a spare hour here or there. For all you know, you could start researching your dissertation as you sun yourself on the beach in Antigua.
