It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
The countdown to your ‘Post-HSC’ holidays is over and it's time to tackle that wish-list you worked up all year. During these next few months, it’s the perfect opportunity to pack in as many experiences as you can before heading back into a routine with University or Career ambitions.
So, now that you’ve finished your HSC, here are some great activities to do before getting back into the swing of things!
You’ve been hauled up studying in your room for the last few months, haven’t you? Going outside has never looked this good, especially since we spent nearly all year inside. Make the most of it and get around to some places you’ve never been to, maybe even take yourself on a trip. Travelling overseas may not be possible at the moment, but luckily we live in the greatest country on earth! Australia has lots to offer so get searching and book some fun adventure-filled trips.
The freedom you have during these few months is unmatched, take advantage of some well-deserved time off so you come back to your new responsibilities refreshed and full of inspiration!
Visit Open Days
If you’re thinking of furthering your education after high school, why not visit your prospective universities and register for their upcoming Open Days. Take the time to explore the campus and get as much information as you can about your study options. Grab some pamphlets and cupcakes, ask some questions and immerse yourself.
Our JMC Open Days are scheduled for the 16th of January 2021 at all our campus' and ready for you to register!Register for Sydney Register for Melbourne Register for Brisbane
Attend Short Courses
Get a taste of full-time courses by attending a ‘taste-tester’ short course during the holidays. Over the course of roughly a few days, students are able to participate in activities centred around what they are likely to get involved in during their time enrolled including Character Design, Script to Screen, Songwriting, Production, Recording and Mixing a Band!
JMC Academy has a range of short courses available for you to attend!
Look for Work
Getting some work experience under your belt is a great use of this spare time you’ve got and helps with building your resume for future opportunities. If your ‘run of the mill’ café job isn’t cutting it, start looking for work that aligns with your passions and interests.
Love to perform? Start gigging around your local pubs as a solo or with some mates. Got a knack for designing? Freelance your skills to other companies. Are you a natural-born writer? Get in touch with your local newspapers and blogs to build up a portfolio. Doesn’t hurt that doing what you love can also pay for drinks with your mates or a standard ‘avo on toast’ brekkie.
If any of our other agenda items don’t fancy you, how about volunteering? Connecting with new people and organisations can take you outside of your comfort zone and allow an immersive experience into different fields. Giving back seeing your hard work pay off can give you a great sense of fulfilment.
Volunteering is also a great way to assist you in the future with job prospects, meeting new contacts and networking. If you’re looking to get into the creative industry, volunteering is the perfect way to test out your preferred fields and expose yourself to the creative environment.
