The art of enjoying your holidays

The art of enjoying your holidays
If you're a student or recent graduate, the holiday period is a welcome chance to relax and think about your options for the future.

No matter whether you've been nice or naughty this year, Santa will gift you three public holidays over Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Many of you will spend those days with family and may find yourself fielding questions about your studies and career prospects. Here’s a guide to making it through the holiday period with your sanity intact.

Take time to reflect

With all the rushing around, buying presents and planning your celebrations, it can get a little hectic in the lead-up to the holidays. Make time to take stock of everything you've done throughout the year, from your studies to your extracurricular activates. Focus on things you’re proud of and identify areas where you can readily communicate wins. If you find this part difficult, start your statement with “I did really well at….” or “I found I really enjoyed…”.

Arm yourself with a plan

Someone will inevitably ask, “What do you plan on doing with your degree?” Your answer could be to get up and refill your drink, or you could prepare by completing a career-mapping exercise, which will help you work out your options. If you really aren't clear on your next step, try to arrange some work experience during the summer break. This will help you identify what you enjoy and where your strengths are.

Network, network, network

With all the festivities and events you’re likely to attend over summer, there’s a very good chance you’ll get chatting to someone who can help you out. Whether it’s career advice or a foot in the door at a new job, there’s a wealth of advice and information out there. Make it work for you.

Enjoy yourself

You've worked hard to get where you are, so enjoy your time off over the summer holidays. Whether you head off on overseas travel or spend time relaxing with friends and family, you want to be refreshed and ready to tackle your career in the New Year.

May your holidays be filled with the love of friends and family. Merry Christmas from The Tax Institute!
