Nitya posted on 08 January

There’s never an end to how much one can learn, how many new skills one can acquire and wouldn’t it just be great if you could put in all of these experiences on your resume too? There are a lot of cool things in this city that can help you amp up your CV and we’re telling you exactly how.

Go make 2018 your year now!

Volunteer For A Cause

Volunteering for a social cause makes life extremely rewarding and that’s when you realise that there’s more to life than just office and college. If you’re passionate about animal welfare, there’s organisations like Friendicoes and SPCA Noida; if you’re tired of complaining about the lack of cleanliness in the city, join the green crusaders at We Mean To Clean and then, there’s the Robin Hood Army that has won our hearts by feeding the needy this year.

Also, check out the website called ColoringLife that gives you access to volunteering opportunities across cities. Go light up someone’s life and your own too in 2018.

Learn A Language {Or Two}

At some point, we’ve all made New Year’s resolutions to learn a new language but very few of us have actually done something about it. But let 2018 be a different kind of year; A year when you’re finally able to tell your poissons from your poulets, por favor from gracias and Si from Oui. To make the task of finding the perfect institute a lot easier, check out our list of foreign language institutes in the city.

Spanish, French or Japanese, master them all.

Skill-Based Workshops

Living in a city like Delhi has its perks, one of them being that there are tons of interesting skill-based workshops and courses happening throughout the week. Delhi Doodle’s classes on doodling comic strips, Zorba’s Madhubani art workshops, creative writing courses at British Council and photography courses at the Indian Institute of Photography are some of our favourites. There’s a lot you can learn with these super fun courses and in some ways, these skills will make life much easier.

Event-Based Volunteering

Not a lot of people know this, but even for festivals like the Jaiput Lit Fest or The Grub Fest, volunteers are required and you can avail a lot of perks {like free passes, workshops etc} and of course, learn the art of event-management too. While applications for JLF have been closed {but remember to apply next year!}, you can still send in your CV for the Grub Fest happening in Gurgaon. Volunteering at TEDxDelhi and at the 7th International Film Festival are just some other opportunities that might look good on your resume.

    Online Programmes

    If you’re working full time, you might not want to go out every weekend for classes, and that’s where online programmes can change the way you give your skills an upgrade. Oxford Home Study CollegeUdemySkillshare  and Coursera are some of the popular websites that offer a wide variety of courses {that are free, for the most part} on topics like artificial intelligence, applied data science with Python, postwar abstract painting, courses on Google AdWords and more.

    They’re all legit websites that also provide you with completion certificates, so don’t worry, there’s just everything to gain.
