yes, i worked as math teacher for kids, and its a good idea if you are responsable at school and if you want or need money ; but if you just want to do something after school and you aren't good at school and things like that is a really bad idea. It's better for you start to pay attention in class and get better at school.

I have never had a job while I study since it takes time for me to study and do my homework. I think it's a good alternative for college students since they will have expenses in degree projects.

Hi, i am going to talk about the part-time job. I think that it is a good idea for students to do part-time work because they can get work experience. Also, they are working to get money and have theirs own personal income. Finally i never had a part-time job because i'm always helping to my mother.

I haven't had any part-time job. I think if the students had a part-time job they should take it because they could have money for some distraction like go out with friends, go to the cinema or walk with their girlfriend.

I haven't had a part-time work. But I have worked on the summer and I think that job is good for the person that need an extra cash. Because in case of student the work helps to be free.

Most of the jobs I have had were part-time.
I think they are a good idea for students, but not for a person who has to live from their job.

I was working on a graphic designe studio, I loved that job. I think It's very good to students do a part time job because students can learn about real life and use that experience in their CVs. Plus earn some money.

No, I haven't. I'm too young to work. Anyway, I think it's very good idea for students to do a part-time job. In this way they can help their parents with the expenses and they gain experience for the future.

I have part time-job. I think that, part-time job is suitable for some kinds of students but according to personalty of student, this issue can be change. While you go to school also at the same time go to job everything can go to dogs but you should try to do this. Some times we have to learn about something by experience.

In my opinion, I think that part time jobs are good for us. We can have a lot of experiences of working, which will be useful in the future. Also, workers have a great chance for making friends communicating and saving money. However, spending too much time on doing part-time job will make you tired, don't have enough time to study. But for me, I am eager to have a part-time job.

I I believe that children's main job is school.Part-time job is acceptable only when it does not interfere with the school lessons.To help finansial situation of my parents I am ready to go to work.You can also go to work if you want to have money for your own needs instead of asking the parents.

Yes, I agree that making money in students ' age, it's normal. It is always and everyone needs money. They are not redundant.Money earned at a young age can help the family budget and personal spending. So to earn money it is very good. Especially when they go to good causes.

In my opinion,a part-time job is an excellent idea for students to get extra money,but I am sure that it will be better for them to work somewhere in their free time, for example,during holidays,since it is very difficult to combine studies and work. As a result, a person will achieve nothing...Personally,I have never had a part-time job,but I want to find a vacancy to work in summer.

Yes, i think part-time job is very important fo students, because usually they need extra money for something like brand clothes or visiting cinema with friends, and sometimes parents don't give money for it. Therefore, if you need something special-let's find a part-time job!

I am completely against part-time job, due to part-time job make you so exhaust and hater for work, and also a survey which has been conducted by BBC it is show that part-time job is pretty hurtful for lives being, so if you have a income by which you can pass your life somewhat good I think there is no need to take part time job because bad thing with working part-time is that you don't take pleasure from your life.

I have never had any part-time job. I think that will e very good experience about all students. They should get used to work and study, and have a little free time. Also in their future, life will be easier for them 'cuz if they used to live fast they'll finish more possible things as fast they can. :)

I have never had a part time job but i think it's a good idea. I'm planning to have a part time job on next summer. Because there is a lot of time to do anything on summer. I always have freetime so i think i can have. On the other hand i can earn some money. But it's not a good idea to work on school days because school is tiring enough for a students.

Never, but i have had training job in travel agent for 4 months. I think it's good if students do a part-time job in the vacation, they can spend time doing something positive but not in the school day. My friend had a part-time job and he constantly fell asleep in the class because of exhausting.
