White flowers between chocolate eggs

Top tips for making the most of your spring vacation

Spring vacation is approaching, offering a well-deserved break and perhaps time to eat chocolate eggs. With exams on the horizon for many, it’s also a time to get organised and come back refreshed. With this in mind, we have put together an acrostic spring vacation themed poem to share some advice…

So, hop on over to the Careers Service for careers-related support. We’re open throughout the spring vacation and beyond and are here for you on campus and online. If you feel your studies need to be your priority right now, that is totally fine! We’ll still be here when you need us.

Progress in your own way; avoid comparisons.

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” (Arthur Ashe, tennis player)

This quote highlights not to compare your progress to other people; we’re all individuals, with varied commitments and work at a different pace.

Reflect on your accomplishments since the start of this semester. We often find that students are surprised, when they stop to think about it, by how much they have developed.

Ask yourself:

  • What do you feel more confident in?
  • What has surprised you the most?
  • What have you enjoyed?
  • What have you found challenging?

When it comes to crafting your CV or cover letter, your notes will be a handy reminder of the skills you have developed and experiences you have built.

In need of an egg-stremely good read? Catch up with our recently published Inform.ed blog posts which are a great source of career journey stories to inspire and empower you.

Now that exams are just around the corner you may find yourself trying to balance having a well-deserved break with revision. The Institute for Academic Development have resources and advice to support you with exams.

Go visit MyCareerHub to check which events are coming up so you don’t miss out. You’ll also find adverts for part-time jobs, internships, and graduate jobs: MyCareerHub opportunities. If a role stands out as interesting to you that’s a great way to understand what your focus can be.

Whatever you choose to do, we hope you have an egg-straordinary break.
