  1. Get ready for an internship. While it’s the most common thing college kids do on summer break, it’s something you would enjoy doing as well.

Plus, you can also coordinate with your dean of students in earning college credits for your work hours in internship.
  2. Get a part-time job. Although some internship pays, some don’t. You may also need some extra cash to prepare for the next semester. A part-time job is the surest lucrative job you can do during summer breaks to let you start paying your loans or keep your finances going.
  3. Volunteer for a cause. Like internships, volunteer activities can also get you connected with relevant people who can help you with your future career.
  4. Attend skill or extra-credit classes, start a project, or hone your hobbies. There are online courses, both free and paid, that can also get you pumped into doing projects you can use as a portfolio or pass the lull summertime.
