As you are getting ready for Thanksgiving Break, you may be thinking about enjoying a nice meal or catching up with friends and family. We are looking forward to this as well! The end of fall semester is in sight, the air is crisp, and Buckeye football is entertaining, to say the least! As you take time to give thanks, here are a few ideas to keep in mind:
Take a few minutes to think about fall semester, your college experience so far, and how you are progressing towards your goals. While you don’t need to dwell on the past, reflection can be extremely helpful as you continue to move forward on your educational journey.
Holidays can provide a great opportunity to talk with friends, family, or perhaps people you have never even met. Asking others about where they work, what they like about their career, or what they like to do for fun can be a great way to learn about others and potential career paths.
Shop the sales
If you need to add a few new items to your professional or business casual wardrobe, take advantage of the Black Friday sales. You don’t need to stand in lines at 4 a.m., but it might be worth checking out your favorite retailers, either in-person or on-line this weekend.
You have likely been pushing yourself, perhaps pulling an all-nighter or two. Sleep deprivation can take toll on the mind, body, and soul, so take the opportunity to sleep in a little late or get to bed a little early. You will likely be amazed at how much better you will feel.
Please know that the Office of Career Management is extremely THANKFUL for the wonderful students and employers we have the opportunity to work with each day!
