WorkingVacationIf you’re still in college and considering becoming a CPA after you graduate, there’s a lot you can do to get ahead, even during Spring Break.  It’s never too early to lay the groundwork for your future career. Here are a couple tips from Forbes on how you can use the free time of Spring Break to be productive.

Network, research, work. Ask yourself if you’ve applied for all the internships you want and whether you’ve talked to anybody in the field that you have access to through your parents, friend, and professors. If the answer’s no, get cracking! It’ll be a lot easier to set up appointments when you’re not occupied by projects, essays, and homework.

Take care of yourself. That said, don’t forget that you’re not at your best if you neglect, eating, exercise, sleep, or relaxation time. Schedule time for work – but remember to schedule off-work time as well.
