As you’re probably aware, Christmas is fast approaching, as is the end of term! With it being the festive season, employers are looking for people to work the Christmas and new year period – what better way to make a bit of money, and add something to your CV? Maybe even build on your team-work and communication skills? It’s always good to start looking early, but employers are sometimes still recruiting in December! Try looking online, in papers, in shop windows, you might be surprised at what you can find!
And on the topic of hunting… what about all you first years looking for a home for the next year? I’m aware some of you are fine as you are, but if you haven’t even thought about it yet – don’t worry. I wouldn’t leave it much later though – spend the break looking for some properties in the area you want to be in, looking for people you want to live with, and speak to fellow students – second years, etc. They’ll have been through this process already, and I’m sure they’ll have some words of wisdom for you! But if this post is making you panic a little, stop. There are more houses than students, so you’re definitely not going to be homeless!
And on a final note, I’d just like to say happy holidays! Good luck to everyone with January exams – I know I’ll be knuckling down hard this Christmas, and hope you all have a wonderful New Year.
Heena. 🙂 -x
