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.

I dont have a part-time job, but when you want to get a job, you need some experience and if you have had a part-time job, can help you to get the job. a part-time job can helps you to have the necessary responsibility for a job. And that you get an extra money for your work is something good.

No, I don´t have a par-time job, because I don´t have time every days. For example, I have to train the mondays and wednesdays voleibol in the afterternoon. Other reason is that in my country is illegal, but equally many people do it.
I consider that later I would like to have a part-time job, because sometimes I need money and my parents do not give me it. Also because I like save money for my expenses.

No, I do not have a part-time job, due to my age, in many places, stores, restaurants, etc. They will not let me work because I'm not yet old enough to do it. But, honestly, I would like to have a part-time job, I think it's a good opportunity to have experience and know how to defend myself before some people. also i will like to have it because it would be good to have money to buy things that i consider neccesary for me.

I don't have a part-time job, but I think it could be a great way to earn cash without be under pressure and have free-time after that. Maybe save up to buy something amazing, a way to be productive.

No, I don't have a part-time job because I'm too young and it is illegal, in a company they won't let us to sign a contract because the police could close that company. Once, in my family there was no money so, I looked for a job and I got it, it wasn't a part-time job because the hours were very long, I entered at 9.00 am and I finished at 8.00 pm, sometimes it was longer. That helped my family and I learned a lot of things, but that didn't leave me time for anything. Later, I will look ffor a part-time job because my family won't give everything for ever.

No, I don't have a part-time job, but I really want one, I think that having a part-time job you can improve your skills, and also, gain some experience that could be useful for your life in the future. In my life, for example, I want a job like this for the holidays because in that time, I'm doing nothing and I'm so bored in my house, so having something like that could be funny and interesting. Also, I think that this type of job gives you a different perspective of the ''real life'', I believe that my country could use some academic methods of France because there, in the "final grade" of school, you can do an internship and with that have some bases for future work.

I don't have a part time job, because in my country it is not common that a high school student work while he/she is studing, It is more common that a university have a part time job while he/she is studing; I really would like that my country is like Japan, where the students star the classes at 8:00 a.m and finish It like... at 4:00 p.m and if you want you can stay at school in the extra activities, like sports or club of drama or in the school band, or you can go to your part time job, because in that country is normal that a high school student have a part time job like in a cafeteria, or in a library; I think that it is great to work and earn your own money, without depend of your parent's, or if you want to help them with some extra money.
I would really like to have a part time job, like in a music shop, or something that can give me the experience necessary when I will have to apply for a job.

Depend, If i dont any other work, it would not be a good option, firstly because the rest of the day you dont have any more for realize, and this jobs the pay is not very good. But if you study in the morning or have other job, this option is the better, because you can earn extra money and your free time it would be productive. This decision depend only of your time and your purposes.

I don't have a part-time job because in my country that is unusual and I need to concentrate on my study. But, I would like to work as a babysitter because I love the boys, they are so cute!! Also, I would like to work in a cafe, because I think that job is easy and you don't need a lot of experience.
