Personal finance By December 16, 2021 Tags: , No Comments

College students will often look to supplement their money and gain valuable experience by taking a job alongside their studies.  These jobs are often part-time or flexible in nature, and not too demanding or likely to cause a conflict with the serious business of attaining an important qualification. This article takes you through the top 15 jobs for college students, and what they entail. 

How to prepare for a job search

Before looking for a job, it helps to consider what you are looking for, and any professional areas which either interest you or are linked to what you are studying.  Prepare your CV or résumé, a cover letter, and practice some mock interview questions with a friend (behavioral interview questions work best).  Think about where you want to work, how you’re going to commute there, and most importantly of all, understand how many hours per week you can work and when you are available to do so, as the recruiter will want to know this information as soon as they meet you.

General By December 8, 2021 Tags: , , No Comments

Ah, winter! The delight of the first snow; Christmas decorations are everywhere. You develop a habit of lighting candles every night and keep cuddling in warm blankets—to bring the feeling of hygge. And unless you live somewhere in Arizona, you get a stylish puffer coat—partly because you need to make contact with the outside world and because it brightens up the fact that the weather is nasty most of the time and everything around is cold and dark. The temptation to cozy up on the couch and watch Netflix non-stop is almost irresistible. 

Don’t give up so easily! Winter might not be the ideal period to stay outdoors for long hours (yet again, reviewing the events of the last year in retrospect, let’s hope we have this choice when we’d like it…), but it’s the time to reflect and take care of ourselves and people around us. It is also the time to get creative and try new things. 

We decided to help you here, and in this article, we’ve compiled a list of 100 things you can do this winter—either alone or with your family and friends—to make winter feel nice. Our list ranges in effort: some days, you may be ready to try a new craft or have fun with your friends, while on other days, a cup of hot cocoa will be good enough. Let’s have a look!
