Better Job Prospects

Having an internship on your résumé demonstrates that you are able to handle yourself in a work environment while also showing that you have taken initiative to gain experience. They can often act as the gateway into the career of your dreams, allowing you to work your way up if you are determined enough.

You Can Experiment

A lot of young people aren’t completely sure about what type of career will be the right fit for them, even after leaving college. An internship gives you the opportunity to gain experience in a field that you might be interested in, allowing you to determine whether or not that particular career path is right for you. If it isn’t, you will still have gained valuable experience that could be used to pursue another role.

Developing Teamwork Skills

Though Caroline McCaul points out that many school and college projects place an emphasis on teamwork, it is not until you enter the workplace that you begin to understand how to actually work alongside others for the benefit of a company. An internship allows you to develop these skills, demonstrating the importance of working alongside others while also taking personal responsibility for your time.

Practice Scales

While they may be a little tedious to people who just want to jump right in and play their favorite songs, playing scales regularly will allow you to develop the muscle memory needed in order to master your instrument. They are also important as they relate to musical theory, so spend time understanding and playing them.

Practice Every Day

The earliest days of learning a musical instrument are often the most difficult as you will often see very little progress in the first few weeks. This leads many people to quit before they have really gotten started. Remember that being good at anything requires practice so keep plugging away and you will start to see improvement.

Enjoy Yourself

While Caroline McCaul notes that the technical aspects of music are important, you also need to enjoy what you’re playing once in a while. Seek out pieces of music that match your skill level and that you enjoy so that you don’t focus solely on technical exercises.

Create a Clean Study Area

Your study area should be an escape from all of the distractions that might prevent you from focusing on your work. It should be comfortable, airy and clutter-free, allowing you to work easily without having to worry about where study materials are hiding. You should also avoid taking your phone with you when you study, in addition to removing TVs, gaming consoles or anything else that might distract you.

Organize Your Time

Many students make the mistake of focusing too much of their time on subjects that they are already competent in, leading to underperformance in the ones that the struggle with. You need to organize your study time effectively so that you dedicate an appropriate amount to each subject. This will also allow you to focus easily when you sit down to study.

Share Ideas

Caroline McCaul enjoys participating in study groups because they often provide her with a new perspective on the subject being discussed, while also allowing her to share her own ideas. They can be beneficial assuming the group focuses on studying.

A Fresh Concept

For a business to be truly successful, it must offer a product or service in an innovative fashion. Whether this is a product that has never been seen on the market before, a new delivery model for an existing product or some other innovation, there must be something that allows the company to separate itself from its business rivals.

The Right Support

Forming a company is difficult at the best of times, but it can be made much more so if you are determined to go it alone. Learn from everybody that you can, whether it be teachers who can focus your studies so you achieve the grades you need or other business owners who can offer a little guidance and a helping hand. Your support system will prove vital throughout the life of your business.

Be Long-Sighted

Caroline McCaul believes that if you create a company with short-term objectives in mind, the odds are fairly high that it will not survive past its first year. Your business plan should include a detailed breakdown of where you intend the company to be in the future, backed by strong research that allows you to feel confident in your endeavor.

Caroline McCaul Believes in NHS Motto – “Nobility Obligates”

The National Honor Society sets as its goals a desire to create enthusiasm for high academic scholarship, as well as a driven need to give service to communities. The NHS works to promote leadership skills in its members, and to foster strong character in secondary school students. The motto of the NHS is noblesse oblige, or “nobility obligates”. The motto dictates that those who claim to be noble, must conduct themselves nobly, and must act in a way that conforms with the reputation and position earned. The motto is especially meaningful for Caroline McCaul, who strives to make her family proud.

The National Honor Society has ties with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the National Junior Honor Society and National Elementary Honor Society, and the National Association of Student Councils. The National Art Honor Society, which states its purpose as moving student members to their highest potential in all forms of art, and Mu Alpha Theta, the U.S. mathematics honor society, which inspires interest in and scholarship in mathematics, also are affiliated organizations with NHS.

Caroline McCaul Follows in the Footsteps of her Texas Family

The leading institution of the University System of Texas, the University of Texas at Austin, is known colloquially as a “Public Ivy”. Currently UT Austin, located only 1 mile from the Texas State Capitol building in Austin, has the 5th largest campus enrollment in the U.S., in excess of 50,000 students, with approximately 24,000 staff members and instructors. “Public Ivy” is a moniker reserved for those public universities regarded as providing a quality of education on a par with Ivy League schools such as Harvard and Princeton. Caroline McCaul, high school senior at Westlake High School in Austin, has decided upon UT Austin for her next phase of academic achievement, following in the footsteps of her maternal and paternal grandmothers, her paternal grandfather, and an uncle, all of whom graduated from this prestigious university.

The University of Texas at Austin originated in a constitutional promise by the Mexican government in 1827 to establish an arts and sciences public education program. When Texas attained independence from Mexico, the new Texas Congress made provision for a general system of education, in 1836. Again, in 1838, a special committee of the Texas Congress presented an “Act to Establish the University of Texas”. In 1839, the Congress of Texas decided to set aside 288,000 acres for a university, with 40 acres of that to be designated as College Hill. When Texas became part of the United States, the Constitution of Texas of 1845 did not mention higher education. Caroline McCaul would have a family legacy at University of Texas at Austin, but first the Texas legislators of 150 years ago would have to fight for it.
