3 months to spare - what to do?


#1

Hey guys and gals ( if any)

Long time I haven't post WP. I've just graduated in mechanical engineering and Allhamdullilah found a graduate job starting in October.

Now that I have wasted time, chilled after studies.. I have three months still left to spare.. I can either waste this time or do something constructive towards my career...

Any ideas what I can do to make this time useful?


#2

Get a nice rishta! :D you have a job, a degree, now you need a gharwali!


#3

Congrats, which university ?

Design a DIY project...


#4

What are your hobbies, interests?


#5

Lol Ahmsun, I don't see how getting a ghar wali is constructive towards my career :P

I graduated in the UK.. As for my intents and hobbies... anything goes.. As long as it is interesting.

Any specific ideas?


#6

Learn any new skill.


#7

Anything goes is not good enough, You're a graduate and you still act clueless that is not good.


#8

a DECENT PROPER course in Microsoft products and photoshop or corel draw.. since you are mechanical engineer, you would definitly need corel draw in future if at a good post ..


#9

learn programming


#10

+1 for coding

+1 for AutoCAD

Describe "anything goes [for hobby]" in details please.


#11

+2 for autocad and Corel draw.


#12

Hmm good advice. I am already familiar with solid works. Corel draw looks really shabby? I know fireworks and it is much better IMHO.

I am very interested in learning software languages.. Is Java worth learning?


#13

Java sure is worth a lot, every language is worth a lot for that matter.

I would suggest starting with Ruby & Rails or PHP or jump right into building an app. The later can be fun.


#14

With some apps developers fetching in millions, IMHO you can also try in this gold rush. Who know Dong Nguyen might be someone from Pakistan.


#15

Learn android development. Very profitable business these days. You can make quite some money by making simple apps.


#16

Learn something (already many said) or gain some skill. But all of these things need time and dedication more than 3 months.

However, I'll suggest to get some console or PC (with good graphic card) and play games. Enjoy your time! ;)


#17

i guess, he Did learn something after all..:D


#18

hey! i just read your old post about taking a gap year…nd i am in a similar condition right now.thinking about taking a gap year.Any suggestiones regarding entry test preparation would be appreciated.Want to get in nust for mechanical…@zazzyo.


#19

Hey, surprised this forum is still used.

Life is very different since then…Anyway I did not end up studying in Pakistan so the gap year was a waste a time. To be honest I was studying year earlier in school anyway so it’s a year in my life unaccounted for :smiley:
However have a Plan A and Plan B after gap year. If you understand what I mean.
