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 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 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'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'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.
