For students, part-time work is very normal. When choosing a job, people will look at it asking what that does, where to does, and how, then the salary. If all suitable, they will take the job and do it. I'm a student and I'm trying to find a job that suits my study time and health.

I am a freshman in college. I have just started studying in a strange city for about 2 months. I am still adapting to life here. So i still haven't thought about working part-time. But in the future, i will find myself a suitable part-time job to ear money to support my life.

Yes, I have a part-time job. I'm working part time at a small cafe. I work in the evening I start working at 5:30 and finish my work at 10. I study in the morning so I have time to work to earn more money. Because I had to study and work at the same time, I had to balance my time so that my study would not be affected.

I had a part-time job last month and I quit because I was busy with my schedule. However, I still want to work to earn money to pay for my school fees and buy personal belongings without asking my parents. In addition, job also help me train more skills and make me more confident in communication .

I only work part-time on summer vacations or holidays, the purpose is to earn more money for student life and gain more experience. I never let this part-time job interfere with learning because it is primary study and part-time work is secondary :))

I myself feel looking for a very interesting job and it is more convenient when everything is posted on the internet. I do not need to come to meet the owner or the tenant, i can also view and meet the requirements laid out

I really want to have a part-time job, but I haven't had chance yet. I think I can improve my soft skills if I have a part-time job. However, at the moment, I have many things to do: studying, assignments, team work, etc... So I plan to find a job in this summer when I don't have to go to school.

I often have a part-time job when I have much time such as on summer and on Tet because that time, I don't go to school and I can spend time to work to earn money. And, I find out works on the adverts in the Internet.

I've never had a part-time job because I'm too busy to have one. Another reason is that I can't focus on studying if I spend a lot of time to do part-time job.

I had a part time job last summer. I worked as a waitress for my aunt's coffee shop and I only worked 5 hours a day in the morning. Luckily, my salary was enough to buy what I want.

I only have a part time job on holidays or in the summer when I don't have to go to school. Therefore, I can get a small income and it won't interfere my school work ^^

I think you're true. If you feel uncomfortable, you can quit that job right now. It's too hard to do things you dont like.

I've never had a part-time job because I'm too young to have one. Another reason why I have not had a part-time job is because my parents don´t let me have one and if I had the time to have one, I wouldn´t know what I would do. But I think it would be nice to have one because this would make me more responsible and I could buy some things without asking my parents.
