You can learn from how other students handle certain situations and test your current knowledge. You can also find out what you’re good at, whether that’s multitasking, staying organized, generating ideas, or serving others. This self-awareness will be beneficial in your future career.

Soft skills are essentially “people skills” — they’re the skills that allow us to effectively interact with others, like communication, attitude, and work ethic.

You’ll learn the best way to communicate with both individuals and large groups, and you’ll gain emotional intelligence as you develop new relationships.
c. You’ll learn how to work with a team.
Knowing how to work well with a team is an essential skill for any career. Working in a student Newspaper teaches you how to do this by putting you in situations where you are required to take advice from others, as well as give your own.

Another great benefit of Working in a student Newspaper is that you get the opportunity to network. Meeting new students, making connections, and building relationships will all help down the line when you’re looking for a job.
e. You’ll gain practical experience in a safe environment.
Participating in a club or an organization based around your particular area of study will give you practical experience within that field. And what’s great about student clubs is that while you learn to use skills like project management, event planning, and fundraising, you get to test them out in a safe environment where making mistakes is OK. Everyone is there to support you, so there’s no fear in messing up or being wrong.
