We were talking about saving money, which was pretty much one of my most important student life principles, and I told him how I could’ve bought the new Samsung Galaxy S8 (but didn’t because at that moment it would have literally brought down my savings account to 0). Instead, I decided to be an angel by using the money to pay for my own...Continue Reading "Please Don’t Fall Into This Spending Trap"

To Future Graduates: How To Have A Viable Career In 2018? http://dkwaye.com/graduates-viable-career/ http://dkwaye.com/graduates-viable-career/#respond Fri, 17 Nov 2017 09:34:53 +0000 http://dkwaye.com/?p=673 Dear future graduates, On the 11th November 2017, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Social Sciences) from Monash University. It has only been two months since I finished my degree (a bit later than usual because I had deferred an exam) and 1.5 months since I flew back to my home country (yes, only to come back again for the graduation ceremony). And a few days before graduation, I signed my first full-time employment contract. How did it all happen so fast? One of...Continue Reading "To Future Graduates: How To Have A Viable Career In 2018?"

How To Get Hired For Your Ideal Internship? http://dkwaye.com/get-your-ideal-internship/ http://dkwaye.com/get-your-ideal-internship/#respond Fri, 10 Nov 2017 03:00:41 +0000 http://dkwaye.com/?p=653 I believe that the internships I went through when I was studying at my university were considered ‘ideal’, at least, at that point in my life. But first, what is an ideal internship? An ‘ideal’ is not necessarily something constant across time. Your ideal job today may be different from your ideal job in a year. The idea of ‘ideal’ is pretty subjective. In any case, here’s my take on defining an ideal internship: it’s an opportunity which brings you value, in terms of the amount of exposure...Continue Reading "How To Get Hired For Your Ideal Internship?"

What To Do If You Miss An Exam In Your Last Semester http://dkwaye.com/miss-an-exam/ http://dkwaye.com/miss-an-exam/#comments Fri, 27 Oct 2017 08:29:22 +0000 http://dkwaye.com/?p=612 Don’t panic. When this happened to me, my friend and I panicked for about an hour before taking action. But delaying the problem will not solve it. I think this is the worst that can happen to an international student: missing an exam in their very last semester of their degree. Especially if the student visa expires right after the exams (like in Malaysia). Often, missing an exam is hugely unintentional: it can be due to a sudden illness… or carelessness (for example, messing up the time and...Continue Reading "What To Do If You Miss An Exam In Your Last Semester"

You’re screwed. I’ll keep this post short. Feel free to skim through it. Time is precious. First Find a permanent desk. Whether you’re furiously typing at home or in the library, stay where you are. Keep this place as your working table for the next few hours (or at least until the library closes, if that’s where you are). Don’t think twice about looking for the ‘perfect study place’.

Can’t Stay On Track? The Art Of Discipline In Your Early 20s http://dkwaye.com/art-of-discipline/ http://dkwaye.com/art-of-discipline/#respond Sun, 17 Sep 2017 08:51:51 +0000 http://dkwaye.com/?p=558 I have been struggling with self-discipline ever since I joined my university. And the more time passed, the less disciplined and messier my university life became. This came as a surprise to me because back in secondary school, we were taught how to be disciplined… and I had no problems with it. I would work for my O- and A-levels while writing three blog posts a week! Now, the moment something happens and gets me busier, I can barely follow my own blogging schedule. I...Continue Reading "Can’t Stay On Track? The Art Of Discipline In Your Early 20s"

Free time? How about I catch up on last week’s readings? And don’t forget to revise your lecture notes! And the moment I felt like taking a break, I’d feel guilty because time is scarce and precious… I should be productive at all times. Does that sound a lot like you too?
