Five things you need to do in your second year of college


  1. Get job experience

Getting job experience is very important. It doesn’t matter where you get the experience. Asking your uncle if you can spend a few hours at his firm may distinguish you from other interviewees two years down the line. The long break that most students get in 2nd year may be spent better getting valuable work experience instead of hanging out with friends and watching TV series the whole day. The value of gaining experience of working at an organization early in your academic career will add to what you learnt in class.


  1. Volunteer

Giving your time in various charities not only ensures that you appreciate what God has blessed you with, but also looks great on your resume. After volunteering a couple of times, it will become something you will love doing. There are various charities that require help, so offer a hand and enrich your life when you are free and you will become a better person because of it, and you never know which doors will open by just being in the right place at the right time.

  1. Get a mentor

A mentor is important as you begin to specialize on the career that you may want to follow. Wise guidance is very essential to ensuring that you avoid pitfalls and a career mentor can help you make the right choices. A lecturer, family member or even an industry player could offer you sound advice based on the experience and wisdom which could lead you to great heights.

  1. Take advantage of school trips and exchange programmes

Taking road trips with friends organized by the school or even by individuals within the student body is a great way of creating memories of your college experience. These trips, however, can get a little bit out of hand, so be cautious. If you can travel abroad as a result of an exchange programme, your  world outlook will be better off compared to being limited by your environment.


  1. Party

Second year is probably the best time to enjoy the social scene before the financial and time constraints of third year creep in. Compared to your first year when you were still fresh and naïve, in second year you are more knowledgeable. You know who is who on campus, who to befriend and who to avoid like the plague. However, although this may be the best time to enjoy the social life on campus, one should not forget their books because this could have dire consequences.
