If you plan to spend you summer holidays watching movies, mall hopping, shopping or burying yourself in front of the PlayStation, we have a better plan for you. You can make the productive use of vacations by planning it judiciously and using it pursue your hobbies and passion.

Swati Salunkhe, career counsellor suggests that during breaks from exams and before the new session starts, students must join hobby courses to add value to their learning. “A formal training in one’s hobbies not only enhances your hidden talent, but also boosts your confidence. One can pick from anything ranging from learning dance and music, candle making, flower making, paper and stone sculpture, making of jute and crochet bags, stained glass painting, and so on,” says Salunkhe.

Not only one learns something new at these hobby classes but the students also get a chance of meeting new people and make friends which strengthens their personality.  “While polishing one’s hobby, one also gets an insight into the field, meet professionals and who knows one might later turn it into acareer decision.”

Since the demand for internship and summer training in increasing at the time of applying for job or higher education, students should make the most of their vacations.

Jayant Krishna, ED and COO, National Skill Development Corporation says vacations are the perfect time for the students to pursue short term courses targeted at skill development. “Students can enrol themselves with Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) which is free programme targeted at skill development of the youth. The training is imparted in over 250 job roles and ranges from 200 hours to 1,000 hours for varied courses under different industry verticals.”

With these classes, one develops soft skills, digital literacy, fundamentals of entrepreneurship and financial literacy which are designed to suit the industry requirements.

“Enhancing one’s hobby helps in boosting the self-esteem and it makes one happy and stress free, in general. Students must make the maximum use of their time by investing judiciously in learning art,” Adwaita Gadanayak, director National Gallery of Modern Art advises.
