Now that Fulton Schools Spring Career Fair days are over, it is time to conduct your interviews with potential employers. At the present time, you may be interviewing with a campus recruiter or you may be conducting your interviews with companies that you found via networking or job search websites. If you have landed an interview…CONGRATS! At this stage, you have already completed all the preliminary work (i.e., applied to the company with your well-written résumé, conducted research on the company and have also established your familiarity with the industry). The question you may be asking yourself is “What are my next steps?”
Need homework help over the weekend? Not a problem! Fulton Schools tutoring is available on weekends in ECG104! Check out the full list of weekend hours (at all four locations). Stop by and get the help you need when you want it.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the tasks you have to complete you should try out the Pomodoro Technique. The Pomodoro Technique is a method of breaking tasks down into more manageable chunks and allowing your brain to rest in between.
Start by listing all the tasks that need completion and set a timer for 25 minutes to focus completely on the first task. Once the 25 minutes are up, set a 5-minute timer and take a break! You can do whatever you want during this time.
When your break is up, move on to another 25 minutes of the next task followed by another 5-minute break. Repeat this cycle four times, and take a 30 minute break at the end.
Scheduling in time to be distracted is actually a great way to keep yourself focused when you actually need to work. When you’re working you know that you have a definite break for relief.
We hope this study technique helps you stay focused and also take some time take care of yourself. Stop by your Fulton Schools Tutoring Centers and ask us for some more study tips!
