As students,sometimes we get broke for one reason or the other. Some students have a reliable and steady source of income while some have to fend for themselves. It is undeniable that sapa is nobody’s mate and breathing at school for a second chokes you with “current or savings?”.

More than half of OAU students struggle to make ends meets, while most of them are at the edge of dropping off. This can most likely be fended off by taking up one or two part-time jobs based on your free time. Part-time jobs aren’t only for those trying to make ends meet but also for students trying not to be idle or relying on their parents all the time.

The following are lists of part time jobs you can take up as a student of OAU:

1. Academic Tutor

Taking your strong academic points to your advantage, you can earn loads of money by tutoring students struggling with that subject. Set academic goals with your students, meet with them frequently until the goals are met.

Do you have a groundbreaking story you would like us to publish? Please reach us through [email protected]


5. Show industry insight and demonstrate you’re connected: An awareness of the industry you are applying for will show the recruiter that you have the ability to stay on top of trends. You will be a
lot more attractive to employers if you are able to demonstrate knowledge of the industry, so make sure you are up to date with any news and industry changes. Also,show that whether at university
or in past job roles, you have met an array of different people. Networking displays that you have strong communication skills and this is something that employers value greatly.


6. Tell the truth: Most people lie on their CV. Blatant lies on your CV can land you in a whole heap of trouble when it comes to employers checking your background and references. The last thing you want is to start work and then lose your new job for lying. You also may get caught out at the

company or the industry. For example, if you’re applying for an environmental job, why not include that you have a big interest in climate change activism?Be careful though; avoid listing hobbies that don’t add value to your CV or are run-of-the-mill, like reading. Draw on interests that make
you stand out or are relevant to the job.


8.Bring it Down a Level: You may be tempted to throw in tons of industry jargon so you sound like you know what you’re talking about, but ultimately you want your resume to be understandable to the average person. Remember that the first person who sees your resume might be a recruiter, an assistant, or even a high-level executive—and you want to be sure that it is readable, relevant, and interesting to them all.


9. Use Keywords: Scan the job description, see what words are used most often, and make sure you’ve included them in your bullet points. Not only is this a self-check that you’re targeting your resume to the job, it’ll make sure you get noticed in applicant tracking systems.


10. Ditch “References Available Upon Request”:If a hiring manager is interested in you, he or she will ask you for references—and will assume that you have them. There’s no need to address the
obvious and doing so might even make you look a little presumptuous.


11.Proofread, Proofread, Proofread: Make sure your resume is free and clear of typos. And don’t rely on spell check and grammar check alone—ask family or friends to take a look at it for you.


Following the above 11 tips guarantee you having one of the best CV. Can you think of any more quick resume writing tips and suggestions that we forgot? What are some CV tips or pointers you can share? Let us know your own excellent hints in the comment section.

OAU students face the intense competitiveness of taking challenging courses, then, studying and acing tests. Many students feel a sense of needing to relieve stress, but with all of the activities and responsibilities that fill a student’s schedule, it’s sometimes difficult to find the time to try stress relievers to help dissipate that stress. These options are relatively easy, quick, and relevant to a student’s life.


1. Eat healthy:Eating a healthy diet can decrease the negative effects of stress on your body. Ensure that you eat regularly, take healthy snacks as necessary. Small, regular meals will help to maintain energy levels and mood while helping to decrease tiredness and irritability. Start the day with a balanced breakfast. Do not take sugary cereals, pastries and too much caffeine. Stimulants such as tea and coffee may provide a temporary energy boost, but consuming too much may reduce energy levels and deplete nutrients in the long term. When chronically stressed, the body has increased demand for protein. Choose chicken, fish, eggs, beans, nuts etc in each meal. Protein helps to slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream. Also, processed foods with highly refined sugars, low nutritional value and high in calories can leave us feeling out of energy and sluggish.


2. Get enough sleep: Most OAU students don’t get enough sleep reading overnight all the time in the process of wanting to bag first-class, this is a very bad habit as this later takes a toll on their body. A lack of sleep can cause the body to react as if it’s in distress, releasing more of the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for fight or flight reaction to danger, increasing the heart rate in anticipation of a fight. Too much cortisol, however, can lead to weight gain and cardiovascular issues over time. Getting a good sleep reduces the cortisol in the body which improves a person’s mood, making a positive impact on their body.


3. Make time to unwind and engage in your hobbies: Hobbies bring a sense of fun and freedom to life that can help to minimize the impact of stress. You need to set aside time for things you enjoy. Try to do something every day that makes you feel good, and it will help relieve your stress. It doesn’t have to be for a long time, 15 to 20 minutes will do. Relaxing hobbies include things like: cooking, photography, watching movies, solving puzzles, knitting etc.

4. Exercise: This doesn’t have to be a gruelling gym session, a brisk walk, jogging etc is enough. Regular exercise can increase self-confidence, improve your mood, help you relax, and reduce symptoms of mild depression and anxiety. Exercise can also improve your sleep, which is often disrupted by stress, depression and anxiety. All of these exercise benefits can ease your stress levels but you have to do it often for it to pay off. If you haven’t exercised for some time or you have health issues, you may want to talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise routine. Also, build up your fitness level gradually. Excitement about a new program can lead to overdoing it and even possibly cause an injury.

5. Time management: Students often get stressed when they feel that they’re running out of time to complete a task. However, simple time management techniques can help you to feel more relaxed and focused. Try creating a written schedule, divide your work into urgent and non-urgent tasks, and important and non-important tasks. Time management helps you to reduce long-term stress by giving you direction when you have too much work to do. It puts you in control and helps you to increase your productivity.


OAU stress isn’t a joke but remaining fresh is important. Above are ways to stay fresh regardless of whatever stress OAU is throwing at you. Stay HEALTHY and stay FRESH!!!.

Fusion Books allowed students to design their own school yearbooks by using a simple drag-and-drop tool equipped with a library of design templates that could be populated with photos, illustrations, and fonts.Perkins saw how much time was required to design a yearbook and thought the high level of consumer friction would make yearbooks a good niche to test the idea for Canva.Over five years, Fusion Books grew into the largest yearbook company in Australia and expanded into France and New Zealand.Perkins and her mother, Obrecht were originally based in Perth. Perkins claims that she was rejected by over 100 local investors in Perth.

In 2011, prominent investor, Bill Tai visited Perth to judge a start-up competition.

Some of the gatherings took place in Silicon Valley where Perkins and Obrecht met Lars Rasmussen, a co-founder of Google Maps. He expressed interest in the idea but told the founders to ‘put everything on hold’ until they found a tech team of the calibre required. Rasmussen then became the tech adviser to the business where he introduced Perkins and Obrecht to Cameron Adams, an ex-Google employee with the relevant technical expertise. Adams was initially not interested in joining the business as he was starting his own business called fluent.io, software attempting to disrupt email.[11] Adams was in Silicon Valley trying to raise funds for his start-up when Perkins sent him another email asking if he wanted to join the business.After that email, he agreed to join Canva, becoming its third founder and chief product officer.Perkins is the CEO of one of the few unique start-ups that are profitable.

Foods are essential in daily lives of individuals, but there are foods that are to be restricted to different categories of people. In this article, I’ll be discussing 7 foods that should and shouldn’t be eaten by students.

1. PIZZA AND CHEESEBURGER

Pizza and Cheeseburger can lead to students gaining extra weight and this gradually leads to fatigue. Cutting down the intake of pizza and increasing the intake in vegetables reduces the risk of fatigue due to excess weight thus, providing more time to study.

2. SODAS
