I haven't gotten a part-time job yet. But I will look forward to it in the future. I do think it is fine for students to get part-time jobs to either help with their family's financial problems or themselves.

I haven`t ever had a part-time job yet. I think it's a good idea for students to do part-time work, because this way they can combine studying at university and earning some extra money. Also, this job may help them to find a better job in the future after graduating.

It is good for students to work part-time to earn their own pocket money.

Yes, I think is very useful for students to have a parttime job, because in the first place get paid and second you gain experience. Which is better if want you want later a job.

No, I never had any part-time job before. But I think that it's a good idea for a student like me to have one because it'll give us the experience of working. Secondly, as we get older, we shouldn't be relying on our parent's money often and start making money for ourselves.

I didn't have a part-time job. I think it's is a really good idea for students. The fist, part-time job is a good work expiriens for future. The second, students can to give money. I want to have a part-time job.

Yes, every summer vacation I am working in a toy store. I think that is not a good idea if the students have a part-time work during school seasons because the only thing that we have to think it would be a homework or classes.

On one hand I think students have to be focused on studying, so it's better don't take any part-time job. On the other hand there are some reasons why a part-time job can be a good idea for ones. Firstly, some families are poor, so students who have some part-time job can help their parents. Secondly, the teenagers can have own money what is good for their confidence. And of course I want to mention about a part-time job in some exact area in order to get some work experience, everyone knows it's very hard to get a job without work experience in specific area. So what about me? Sometimes on weekends I have different part-time job, such as digging pits, modelling, decorating the house(I help my godfather with his job, he lays parquet and tiles). That's why I have my own money which I can spend to buy some toys, sweets, birthday presents for my family and friends.

No I never have a part time job yet but I think it's a good idea for the students to do part-time work because the part time work, first it's a way that can help you in the future with a real work because you have already experiment it when you are student . so now you know wow to do the information you have to collect and give. secondly the part time work is mostly important I think if you are in the universities because there its seem you already grew up so you can do it to have money for example to pay your studies, buy foods because you can't count on your parent to bring you every month a money. so the part time work really for me it's a good idea for student because its prepared them to the future so they can't have problems. and its improve their skills certainly.

I've never had a part-time job, but I think it's a really good way for students to learn more about responsibility and develop autonomy! Actually, my high school and my current college don't allow me to be in a job because it's full time. Besides that, I consider working during next summer time, it would be fun having a new experience.

Submitted by Wxllxam on Thu, 05/14/2020 - 10:03

No, I've never had one but I hope when I'll be at university. I don't think it's the most important thing for a student cause at university he just need to learn, but it's not the same for students who don't have the resources a part time job is necessary. So, I think that a part time job is a good idea for a student, more they'll acquire experience, but if they don't have to do it necessary and they can do something else for their studies like learning or extracurricular activities they don't need to have a part time job.

I have never hade a part time job, but I would like to try it. There are many benefits the part-time work can bring ti students: - they can have their own money - to get the first work experience with some responsibilities/discipline But, on the other hand, it shouldn't take too mach time to allow to a student studying.

I have never had a part-time job, but one of my roomates has one. He works at our university's restaurant as a waiter. In my opinion, it is a good idea to have a part-time job. On one hand, you can get paid for it. On the other hand, it also helps you to go out of your comfort zoon and meet all kinds of people at work!

No, I’ve never had a part time job before, but I’ve always want to try doing a part time job in the future and I’d planned to try on a waitress part time job next summer, considered now I am 14. In my opinion, students doing a part time job is a good idea. We can learned a lot by taking a part time job, and we can get a lot of experience for our future. Plus, I want to tried new things so getting a part time job sound good to me.

I had two type of part-time jobs . I worked at restaurants two years . but that is waste of time for students . I think part-time job is bad effect for student . We need study a lot . I don't have time to learn any thing . If you don't want to spend time for study ,part time is good to store money ,but we couldn't entire college .

Submitted by CoolGirl123 on Wed, 04/04/2018 - 19:32

I have never had a part-time job. I thought it's not necessary for students because a student needs to study. When a student has a part-time job it's difficult to study. In my opinion, it's more important to study as a student. But when you can combine it with a part-time job, it's very nice to have also money. With that money, you can buy a lot of things.
