Tips for Managing the Work-School-Life Balance
1. Track your achievements
Don’t minimize your experience. Give yourself the credit you deserve and use your accomplishments as leverage.
2. Put in extra effort
Go above and beyond and your hard work will be noticed and rewarded. This includes efforts for work, school, and personal relationships.
3. Build a network
Learn and grow from the people all around you. Acquaintances, friends, coworkers, and professor. Foster important relationships so you have a good support system. If you don’t know something, ask! If you need help, ask! That’s what networks are for.
4. Be intentional with your time and efforts
Focus on gaining skills and knowledge that push you towards your ultimate goal
Let those around you know about your goals so they can support and encourage you
6. Create a schedule
Make a schedule that enables you to have a healthy balance between school, work, and family. Prioritize and commit!
7. Set clear expectations
Make your academic priorities clear with your employer, family, and friends. This should provide you with a flexible and supportive community of people that understand your goals.
8. Ask for help
Contact Student Services or your Professor if you need help, have questions, or if you are falling behind. We are here to help!
