My first part-time work in college was providing piano tutoring to seveal fellow college students. It was fairly easy and I earned quick money as well as met people who loved classical music and piano. Then I got a more formal job in the admission office in my college. I was in charge of all the coordinating and contacting works in that office, and sometimes I was commissioned to high schools to give consulting talks or supervise admission tests.It's not a very remunarative job but I'm so pround of this experience as I won trusts and confirmation from my colleagues and supervisors. My last internship was with a famous consulting firm. The payment was rather good, so was the welfares, but the work was rather intensive and demanding. It pushed me to tap my potentials and finally made me realized that I don't like such an aggressive job. It's surly something good to know earlier.

well. i don't think it is good of you find a job when you study in school. but if that can't effect your study, you could do that. many students don't study a lot in university. so find a job , it is really a good things for them.

Well here you assume that part-time job won't go well with studies but unfortunately that's not necessarily the case, and I've done excellent work in my studies. In fact, a full-time internship is required in my college and it counts for several credits as a method get students well prepared for the career future. I guess it's a general practice in most colleges in the world.The consulting firm I've worked for is the most prestigous one in the field of human resource management, so I get know that in the eyes of employers, your working abilities weight much more than your transcript 'cause GPA won't prove your're qualified for a position , that's why in most automatic CV-selecting systems a CV without working experience goes directly to junkbox. Besides, how come working affect your study in college? Nobody wants single-task person.

back in university days i used to teach english to some korean students near where i lived off-campus. the pay i received for two hours work is much better than what some of my friends receive in half-day work they had at the time in food joints. i was on scholarship and family income was so tight i really had to earn for myself in order to buy books and other school and personal necessities. i was independent for as long as i can remember and i didn't ask money or any financial support from my parents.

Yes, I had part time job when I was a college student. At that time I was a tutor for a high school student. This is a good experience for me. At least I could take advantage of my knowledge to earn. I love China
