Follow-up to 4th Blog from Mahima's blog

The start of a new academic year and a new blog entry!!

Networking Skills:

I think my summer was rather productive; I did two internships this year, one at KPMG and the other at Edelwiess. Although both were good experiences I have come to the conclusion that I want to pursue a career in law and this year I am first going to try and apply for a summer internship at a legal firm. The first step towards getting this internship is to go the careers fair this thursday and focus on having one or two conversations with firms that are there. I also want to continue my involvement with societies. I will be attending the Oxford MUN conference this year and perhaps one more conference in the spring term. I have already applied to one world week and am considering applying for the economics summit. I aim to atleast finish the skills portfolio award by end of this year and apply for the warwick advantage award this year

Time Management:

I think time management is even more crucial this year because I will be living in leamington which is atleast 20 mins away. I also feel that I want focus on getting a first this year which is why I will only involve myself with a few events and societies. I am already a part of WIDS magazine and blog team, I want to continue my involvement in Model United Nations and perhaps get involved with the debating societies and attend a few conferences. Apart from this I have applied to the one world week and to the warwick economics summit. I do not want to get involved beyond this because I have applied for a student calling job on campus to get work experience which will require 6 hours a week and I don't want to compromise on my grades this year. Apart from this I have continued my policy of having reminders on my phone about classes and events and putting up to-do lists on my lap top to get me more organized and to remember everything that I plan to do.

Essays, Math and Reading:

Despite not doing so well in Math last year I have still taken econometrics which is the higher level of math because a lot of the modules that I plan to do in my third year have that subject as a requirement. I realize that this would require me to be super attentive in the lectures as well as work harder at the subject. I am fully prepared to do this. In every essay that I do this year I will focus on first creating an essay plan. I'm also going to go to the library and finish the reading as soon as the lectures ends because I have a lot of time between lectures and seminars this year. I have tired out a few skills that I learned in the speedy reading seminar and this has really helped me improve my reading speed.

Hopefully I will be able to keep up with my guideline for this year!
