Most of us have our summer vacation and the rest have their placement classes. But there is one thing in common that everyone can do, and that is upgrade yourself to a better version. There are many ways through which you can do this but if you are still confused, then let me help you out a bit. This is the best time to explore new skills and experience as many new things as you can.

There are lists of a few things that you can do this summer vacation that will make you feel more confident than ever once you come back to university:

Internships/Part-time jobs

No doubt, summer vacation is a break from a hectic college schedule but remember, it is also necessary to use this time to the fullest. The best way to do this is to find an internship and explore areas that interest you. You can also try to search for internships based on your niche that will help you in building an eye-catching resume. Moreover, it won’t hurt to earn a few extra bucks. You can search for your ideal internship through websites like Internshala, LinkedIn, etc. Did you know that LPU also provides the opportunity of doing part-time jobs, that can also be availed by international students?

Develop new skills

Who doesn’t like a good resume with skills that are in high demand? Join a summer school where you get to meet new people and learn new things from them every day. With the fast-pacing life, each one of us needs to keep up with it and be our best selves. Also, you can take up some courses from different platforms like Udemy, Coursera, edX, Udacity, etc. You can also take skill development from LPU at a very reasonable price with very experienced faculties. You can also learn new programming languages and develop new projects while sharpening your skills.

You can also learn many foreign languages like German, French, Japanese, etc. LPU also provides short-term courses on different levels of certificates where you can learn and get certificates.

Volunteering programs

Mother Teresa truly said, “It’s not how much we give, but how much we put into giving.”

We take so much from society, so it is our responsibility to pay back to it by doing good deeds. You can join any NGO and work with them to get this immense contentment. Explore your options and join any NGO that inspires you, this can be related to the environment, animals, feeding the poor, and anything that you want to work in.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
