Since I handed my dissertation in and my exams had finished I felt really strange. No more essays to write, no more deadlines, no more revision, (well until September) but a summer to just relax and do absolutely nothing 🙂
Or so I thought… I spent a week at home being lazy, sleeping in relaxing and found it completely BORING!!! So I decided to get in touch with a local politician to see if there was any work experience or writing I could get involved in.
I helped handing out leaflets after the local elections and attended meetings where they discussed local politics and it was very interesting.
Volunteering is a great way to show employers that you have given up your spare time to get involved in something extra alongside your degree and shows a commitment.
I would definitely recommend it to any student!!
