Student Jobs – take a part-time job while studying in university?

careers, Universities 431 2037

It is very common that students do part-time jobs while studying in foreign universities. It’s obvious that if you don’t work, you will have more time to study, but doing a job can get you some income to survive or get some pocket money without depending on parents.

Research has shown that those students who work while studying tend to understand and grasp their studies much better than those who are not on job. They understand the nature of business and get a practical learning about how things are done. For example if a student is studying telecommunications and works at a call center, he will understand each and every thing much better.

However students working while studying should definitely not divert from their studies and keep a balance between their studies as well as job.

Types of part-time jobs that students at University of Florida do includes Child care, landscaping/ maintaining garden/ gardener, swim lesson instructor, house cleaning, tuition (tutor), office assistant, management assistant, delivery jobs, lifeguard, sales assistant, recreation assistant, web designers, violinist/ musician, mailing letters, dishwasher, IT technical assistants, tour guides, book keeper, delivery work, receptionist, creative writers, drivers, photographers, graphic designers.

In Sri Lankan universities part-time jobs are not promoted. However some students do various types of jobs: conducting tuition, security jobs, waiters etc.
