Holidays with bright sunshine and golden beach are always the best image in our mind, but for young people, when they are facing the choices between part-time jobs, learning to play sports or musical instruments, most of them may feel confused. As to me, I suggest to grasp the opportunities to accumulate my working experience, which have already made a mass of students great beneficiaries.
The first benefit is to make them well-prepared for future challenges in workplace. Without the experience of part-time jobs or internship, students are restricted by schooling where they just learn about the theoretical knowledge, regardless of how much these books are related to their future career. Clearly, those fresh graduates will get a strong sense of frustration. On the contrary, if experiencing this gap in advance, they are trained to combine what they have learnt from books with the social practice, which eventually makes them easy when facing the realities after graduation. Compared with the future benefits, the current pain, clearly, doesn’t matter.
Aside from good preparation, interpersonal skill is another necessity that everyone needs to attain before they entry the workplace. According to the survey conducted by Academic of Social Science, those graduates who have experienced the working environment during college time for more than 3 month are triple likely to be employed than those who have never got trains before for the reason that they clearly perform much better in cooperation and leadership. We have seen too many cases how the experienced graduates avoid communication problems and push up the teamwork efficiency. I don’t think they are born with such ability, so if students want to make themselves more outstanding over their rivals, they need to take part-time job in their free time.
When I talk with some parents about this issue, they think that since their kids have interest in that, it is reasonable to arrange sport and music time in their holiday. How much do they know about their school life? Actually, the students make full use of their pieces of time at school in such activities but, they hardly have chances to take part-time jobs, which usually need whole day or whole week. Accordingly, only during the holiday and vocation can they concentrate on their work.
In conclusion, it is significant to encourage them to take part-time jobs. Only in this way can students really experience the huge distance between school and office and, more importantly, be well-developed into individuals.(410 words)
It seems that everyone in the world aspires to achieve something so as to live life to the full, especially the young who have a glorious future before themselves. Although a vast majority of people agree with this notion, opinions on how to achieve one’s ambitious dreams or realistic goals are diverse. As a broadly-disseminated idea goes that the other 8 hours of free time determine one’s success, an increasing number of young people are pondering a problem of how to maximize their “free” time – the 8 hours in the day when they are not studying, working or sleeping. As far as I am concerned, from the three above-mentioned ways to utilize the free time, I would unhesitatingly choose the second one – learning to play a sport.
Despite the fact that the 8 hours after work or study can be a valuable resource one has to achieve one’s ideal life, let’s be honest first, the time when one is working or studying is the most valuable. It is imperative for either students or workers to make the full use of this “unfree” time for any academic pursuit or career advancement, in which case an investment of large amounts of energy and attention is required. Then, physical and mental fatigue would unavoidably ensue. Therefore, the way I see it, when these young people are free in the evenings or have days off at school, relieving their tiredness should be given top priority. Learning to play a sport and engaging in related sports activities, even just for a few minutes, will help to relax their muscles and relieve the tension in the face, neck, shoulders and other body parts. Alvin Oldman, a lead researcher of New Channel Health Center, emphasized that people who exercise regularly feel more energetic throughout the day, sleep better at night, and feel more relaxed and positive about themselves and their lives.
It is tempting to argue that play sports will help to relax, so will learning to play a musical instrument and engaging in related musical activities. Nevertheless, further analysis would reveal that playing a musical instrument is not so easy as expected. A simple piece of music may require seven consecutive days of practice, for which seldom would persist. Meanwhile, just hearing a couple of musical notes by touching the strings of guitar or hitting the keys of piano is neither likely to relieve one mentally since no melodious music is produced nor likely to relieve one physically in the same way sports does.
As for the first choice, let’s be honest once again, little working experience could be accumulated through a part-time job or volunteering in the a community simply due to the fact that little amount of time is devoted to this kind of work. This so called first hand experience lasts for such a short time that participants barely knows what the rules and regulations of a certain company are or how the business operations are conducted. Moreover, do not interpret part-time job or volunteering work literally, more often than not they can be rather demanding, and of course, time-consuming, for which seldom would persist.
In conclusion, learning to play a sport is young people’s best choice in their free time.
