Tips on what to do during ASUU strike
I am here today to write about useful tips on how to use your time wisely during holidays/ASUU strike.
I’ve read a lot of online post about students saying ASUU strike is increasing their study year but i want to tell you that this is the perfect time to improve your productivity.
When you have this kind of opportunity during your school year please use it wisely because the reality is there is no job waiting for you anywhere except your father is well placed or you are one of those lucky few.
Let’s get started
Social Media: This is for the slay kings and queens out there, you have 5000 friends on facebook, 2000 followers on twitter, 1000 followers on instagram and snapchat but you are complaining about how your monthly allowance as stopped because you are at home. Do you know the kind audience you have to yourself and you are not selling anything? Try this; when get your next allowance, buy some products; skin product, wrist bands, neck lace, etc. Get good pictures of them and post on your social media pages, you’ll be surprised how much you can make within a very short time. Thank me later
Skill Acquisition: Jack Ma the Executive Chairman of the famous Alibaba group once said It’s okay for my kids to have average result in school because they can use those time not studying to pursue other goals in life which is eventually going to make them successful. Back to my point; there’s no too much emphasis on skill acquisition. Please and please, learn a skill as a youth because you just don’t know what is going to put food on your table tomorrow. ASUU strike and holidays are the best periods to learn something. Don’t feel to big to learn that skill you always wanted to know about
You are an electrical engineering student but can’t touch electric cables? enroll in an electrical workshop because the reality is not on MATLAB, A mechanical engineer with knowledge on how to change car plugs please enroll in a mechanic workshop, A computer scientist without programming skill please learn one programming language during this period, A statistics student without data analysis skill get you hands on SPSS today, all i’m trying to say is just try to learn a skill and you’ll be forever be grateful you did
Blogging: I know some of you love writing and sharing your thought about things, how about you make that professional and make money from it? Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org on how to start your blog and how to make money from it.
Freelancing: Is there something you really love doing? A childhood dream, a skill you learnt jokingly and you really got good at; graphic design, swimming, website design etc. Why not make it professional, make you friends understand that if they want to still be your friend, they’ll have to start paying for those services. Develop yourself and make yourself a force to reckon with in the trade and the heaven is your stepping stone.
Conclusion is majority of what we learn in school will only get us the exposure and grammatical know-how on making it in life but the true hit is going to come from what you can do with your hands. The edge you’ll have over a street mechanic is that you can get your hands dirty and still explain with big grammar to your clients.
