Tips and Tricks for Keeping Up With Your College Workload

Tips and Tricks for Keeping Up With Your College Workload

Whether it’s your first semester of college or you’re in your senior year, sometimes the amount of work you need to complete can get overwhelming. You have assignments coming at you from every class, you need to study for upcoming tests and you may also be working to support yourself. By following a few key tips and tricks, you can make it much easier to keep up with your workload.

Schedule Your Days in Advance

If you’re just winging it every day without any concrete plan, then you’re probably not getting as much done as you could be. Many of the most successful people in the world plan their days in advance, so it’s good to get into that habit.

Calendar

Write out a schedule for your day either in the morning when you wake up, or the prior evening before you go to bed. Make sure you include all the schoolwork you need to complete for the day. When you put your schedule in writing, it’s easier to stay focused throughout the day. You’re also never wondering what you need to do next, because you can just check your schedule. There’s less chance that you get off track when you have a written schedule, as you know that if you don’t stay focused, you won’t meet your goals for the day.

Get Help When You Need It

You may not understand all your course material just by learning about it in class and from your textbook. Instead of struggling to figure out a difficult concept, it’s a much better use of your time to ask for help. Visit your professor during his office hours, study with a group or hire a tutor.

Don’t Overdo It

Dont overdo

 

Over-studying can be just as big of a problem as under-studying. When you work on anything around the clock, your performance starts to suffer and you retain less information. That’s one of the main reasons why cramming isn’t an effective studying strategy.

How can you avoid burning out? When you’re studying or working for an hour or more, take the occasional break to stretch your legs, grab a bite to eat or just relax. Avoid marathon study sessions and instead study consistently for a set amount every day.

Balance Your Studies and Your Social Life

There’s nothing wrong with having a social life. In fact, it’s one of the best parts of the college experience. But you can definitely have too much of a social life. If you’re going out with friends every day, it’s likely to affect your performance in class.

It’s important that you know how to decline invitations to hang out, even when your friends say it will be just for a short time. Sometimes you need to buckle down and get your work done. If socializing is often interrupting your studies, you may want to limit yourself to only hanging out with friends on weekends.

College can be a full-time job, especially if you have a full course load. With these tips, you can stay on top of your work for better grades and a less stressful semester.

4 Tips For People Wanting To Pursue A Career In Accounting

So you have just obtained a professional accountancy qualification. That’s great news, but what’s next?

You have applied to various accountancy firms and even banks, but no luck. You never heard from them. Getting a break irrespective of the field you are interested in takes time. So before you let discouragement get the better of you, here are some tips to help you pull through this stage and on to pursuing a great career in accounting.

1: Don’t Waste Time

Till a recruiter gets in touch with you, make the most of the time you have on your hands. Look for internships, paid or unpaid, and get that experience! While your first aim should be to look for an opportunity that pays, but even if you come across a chance to work in an accounting firm that does not pay, sign up for it.

You will not regret it.

2: Be on Top of Your Field

Taxation laws in Australia, accounting procedures and related things keep on going through various updates and modifications. As an accounting graduate you should keep yourself updated on whatever is happening in your field, various accounting laws being introduced etc so that whenever you are called in for an interview you make an amazing impression.

3: Spend Some Time on Your CV

A great tip for you is to revise your CV periodically. Most recruiters complain how the CVs they get keep missing the mark. What you can do in this regard is to look for the accountant related job opportunities that are posted online, go to the section marked “skills required” and include those skills in your CV too.

Obviously, you must actually be having those skills in reality too and not just write them for writing sake. Additionally, if you notice a particular course or skill being mentioned again and again in the “skills required” section, think about enrolling for those in-demand courses. For example, courses in various accounting software are frequently mentioned as a must-have skill in many ads for accounting jobs. And what is better that several colleges and websites offer these courses for free. Look them up and make the most of it.

4: Job Employment Websites

With so many job employment websites available today, it would be a really big mistake to not take advantage of them. To check out one such site, click here .

If you notice that on the site, there are not just one or two ads for accounting jobs posted, but several! And what is best about such job employment websites is that from the company’s name, to its location, salary package being offered, what they are looking for in a potential employee etc all such vital information is already mentioned.

You can go through them and apply to whichever job posting you feel like you would be a good fit for. Keep checking job employment websites regularly so that you do not miss out any opportunity.

This article covers time management, goal setting, breaking down your day so it can all be done, also managing your time and how much time will it take to finish your project as well as how to make a plan to get it all done. There are different strategies for each person to help plan in advance and to make it all come together.

I liked the planning in advance whether it be a day, week or a month. Putting it all together because it’s not all due at the same time. You are just needing to adjust your schedule and make sure you don’t PROCRASTINATE!!!
Motivation is what brings it all together.

Read this article, there is a lot to glean from this one.
