New Year’s Resolutions: The Student Edition

Apply Now

Another year round the sun has absolutely flown by – or at least, it probably feels like that if you’re a student. As you juggle your way through the constant balancing act of studies, work and social life, sometimes it’s worth hitting the pause button and realigning your goals. And there’s no better time to do that than now. 

That’s right, it’s New Year’s resolutions time – the student edition! Here’s five brilliant targets to aim for that could help you make 2022 a year to remember.

Get out of your comfort zone 

With university, work shifts and inevitable nights out, the weeks can start to blend together as you settle into a routine. The irony about this ‘comfort zone’ is that too long inside of it can end up being not so comfortable at all. So set your mind to breaking out of it!

Head to a part of the UK you’re yet to visit. Go to a festival you’ve never been to. Meet new people and make fresh connections. Spicing things up with a dose of the unknown is the key to opening up a world of possibilities after uni.

Start saving 

You don’t need us to tell you that student life is expensive. So much so, in fact, that getting up and out there to experience new things may be easier said than done. Big plans may need big funding, so finding better ways to save (and make!) money is key.

With hap, work has never been more flexible. You can pick shifts around your studies and if you end up working regularly, you’ll receive a weekly wage – allowing you to save as you go. 

Upskill yourself

Making plans for post-graduate life may be at the bottom of your to-do list – what with deadlines, coursework and exams to prepare for. While learning new skills is a sure-fire way of future-proofing yourself, how does this fit in on top of university?

Flexible work can help here too. hap provides opportunities to work in a wide range of industries, with training courses available. This way, you can develop your skill set alongside your studies. 

Improve your work-life balance

With a double helping of educational and paid work, students can often be lumbered with an uneven work-life balance. And we all know what happens when the scales tip too far one way or the other.

But that’s the beauty of many of the roles available with hap: the lines between work and play become much less defined. With a ton of opportunities to earn at some of the best UK events and festivals, as well as on the teams of exciting hospitality venues, you can level out your work-life balance without affecting your grades. 

Register to work with hap

Fancy achieving all this in one fell swoop? Signing up with hap is the fifth and final resolution that will allow you to do exactly that. With flexible opportunities that work for you, you can soak in new experiences across the UK, save money effectively while learning new skills, and get that work-life balance you need.
