These days one can find a wide range of part time jobs available for students. One can choose from them depending upon one’s area of interest and liking, schedule and demands. Earning while learning is what most of the students and youngsters can be found doing. These days the most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to part time jobs is balancing between job and studies. Many students now a days can be found struggling hard to find a balance between family friend’s studies and jobs .Nevertheless all this is not that difficult if one applies and follows basic time management skills. Part time jobs can be of different types from working as a nanny to being a pet care taker and from working as a receptionist to giving tuitions to junior school kids. It’s always advisable to choose a part time job which helps a person in his /her future career. Like for example if someone wants to make a career as a painter , it is useless for that person to work part time with a music company as it is very different from his /her goal . Furthermore working in the area of one’s interest is always advisable as it helps in polishing one’s skills. Working part time as a student also helps a person in discovering what kind of work they are good at and will probably take up as a future career. These jobs have become a kind of trend these days with more and more students opting to get a work experience along with their regular studies. Apart from the academic point of view, it also helps the students in getting some extra pocket money and instills in them a feeling of worth fullness and independence which is very helpful in character building. With more and more colleges preferring students with some practical knowledge about the field they are going to study in, students can be seen struggling to find a balance between studies and work. Taking up part time jobs also helps students in realizing the importance of money and the hard work that goes behind earning every penny. It teaches them how to manage money and deal with different people therefore helping them in growing as an individual. On the job front, students at a very young age learn how to deal with a lot of people and work diplomatically and with a lot of patience and accuracy. Part time jobs are a lot of fun most of the times as they can be anything from working at one’s favorite food joint as a cook to working in making the arrangements and managing the audience in a rock concert or volunteering for some event of national importance. What one should keep in mind while taking up a part time work is that the part time work should not take up one’s full time attention leading to negligence on the studies front. There are numerous cases in which students initially take up part time jobs because everyone else is taking them and are not able to find a balance and as a result perform badly on both fronts. One should take up only as much work as one can handle and not try to do too much.
