I would prefer to have jobs as a writer and a model. Actually I was working as a model a few times. It's not difficult and funny. You can wear different beautiful close, to perform, to pose, to be on the stage and to meet loads of beautiful girls))

No, I don't have any part-time job. Honestly, I'm not very interested to have a part-time job. I mean, I rather focus on study.

i used to work part time job. So based on my experience,in these jobs, I'd like to work for Coffee Beans. Firstly, it has flexible hours for me because I can work in my free time and not dominate my study time. I still give priority to my studies.. Secondly, it helps me practise soft skills such as communication, solving problem skills, teamwork. Another, i do it because of passion

No. I don't have a part-time job. In these jobs, I'd like to work for Coffee Beans. Firstly, it has flexible hours for me because my schedule is not in order, so it's hard to manage the time. Secondly, I can get management opportunities and gain experience such as communication, solving problem skills, teamwork. As a result, it will be easy to have soft skills and experiences for my job in the future. Last but not least, I'm a big fan of coffee. Every day, it's wonderful to enjoy a cup of coffee. Boost my energy and help me to feel positive about everything.

Actually, I’m a civil engineer with more than 4 years experience and I think of doing others jobs. If I had to do one of these part-time jobs, I would prefer working for Coffee Beans because I really like working in restaurant or café, and I’m used to cooking in our house, so I like this kind of job.

Hi Rachael, You’re right, I’m over 17 years old, but I’m just a recent English learner so, I’m using several websites for having good skills in English, and this one is among them! Now, I’m at the intermediate level in both grammar and reading skills, and I hope to continue in this way until reaching the highest level. I posted my comment so that I may improve my writing skills, but, as you said to me, I won’t ever post any comments, I want you to give me your feedback. Thank you, Greetings from Algeria

I have a part-time job as a teaching assistant. I think it is wonderful for me as I can work delightedly with small kids and it related to my favorite subject (English). In this article, I'd like to try hairdressers or models. I found it very interesting. However, I don't consider choosing that as my all life career.
