Part-Time Jobs

The truth is that anyone can be a part-timer. You can do part-time jobs online, or at home. Just figure out what your interest is and go from there.

What are the pros and cons of working as a student? There have been many debates on this subject.

Working part-time as a student will make you weary and affect your academic performance but does it mean you can not work part-time?

You can. Well, we sleep for eight hours and study for eight hours. That means we have eight hours for other things including work. Thus, there is room for us to work part-time.

Why you should have a part-time job as a student.

Time management becomes essential to you because you learn to prioritize.

Prioritizing teaches self-discipline.

While working, you build a portfolio for your future career.

These are the experiences of students who had part-time jobs while they were in school.

Realizing that people wanted snacks around campus, I decided to start with spring rolls and fruit drinks during my second year at the University of Ghana. When I started, it was difficult to get buyers. I registered for stands during hall and department week celebrations and that increased my popularity. In time I could make enough money to tide me over.

Learning to do make-up during the vacation was helpful. I knew many of my mates liked to make up. I made flyers to get people to notice me and kept advertising my brand during campus programs. My products were quality and my prices were affordable. I worked anywhere my clients felt comfortable.
