Hi annie_ako I am student myself and in India students are not supposed to work for money. But since you were in hospital it is differnt. Here doctors after doing their theory classes for 4 and a half year do one year of internship where they have to work a lot .. though it is part of their course but during this time they are paid , though money is not much by western standards they are paid about 1000$ a month.

1000$ a month is a great amount it accounts to 45000 rs ,it is not a ordinary amount in india,it will take 10 years of experience to get there,even 20000rs per month is a standard salary for many people

Yes i wouldnt mind to work for any firm if i get to learn something new from them, even if i have to pay for that. Later you may utilize the knowledge you have gained to earn somewhere else. The most important thing here is that you should enjoy learning new things at any stage of your life, however old you grow. I was once asked to help one of my cousins with his studies, though i didnt know anything about the subject, but i got into it, tried to understand it in a best possible manner and helped him a lot with it. Though i had to devote my free time behind that but in the end i learned much about it and later, i discovered i had a whole unit of it in one of my subjects too. So it was definitely worth it. One must never refrain themselves from learning anything new.

i believe that everyone who graduated from college experienced to work as a worker. This what we call On the Job Training. But many not paying instead you have been given allowance, not necessarily of the agency that you are working for but with some colleagues in that agency. After all the hardship of working without pay, people around where you work can see that and they rewarded those who are doing on the job training. It may not follow to all but i have seen that almost all agency that accept on the job training are rewarding those people, this maybe we call humanitarian reason. This is important because putting what you have learn in action is far different than just having theories

Hi Annie! I suppose you are a Filipino. It was an issue before here in the Philippines that student nurses should not pay for their on the job training. Anyway, I am proud of you seeing that you enjoyed being a nurse. I think it is really a calling to help others and be happy on it. I did not work while I was studying. I am a professional student. Well, this is what they call it when parents give allowances and pay tuition fees. My parents did not want me to work just to concentrate on my engineering studies. It is good that I managed to be graduate and passed the licensure examination.

hi there. definitely each college student has to undergo on-the-job training before they graduate because it would serve as their training grounds in preparation for the real jobs, and it is also done to check if students have learned something out of the years of theoretical lectures, and they would be able to apply it on the training. it's the same thing with all the courses as well. my mom told me when they had experienced this on during their days, they were still provided with little allowance for their work done. but i don't think that still implies today, due to economical problems or issues. it's seemed like just a voluntary work now. so that would only be it. and i'm glad to hear you've accomplished the hours for your training, and looking forward to your other school works. see you around!

I attended a medical internship many years ago and learned a great deal. It too did not pay but it was part of my obligatory course work so I had to do it. However, before my course work was done I was hired there so I found it to be a double reward, the free experience and then later to work and get paid.

Yes. I work while I am still a student. My major is Electrical Engineering and I do works in the lab of my boss. Usually, my boss separate his researches into parts in give to us. And we work as real workers in the lab, doing circuits design, simulations, and modulations. Finally make a whole work which is fits all the demands. So, I think I am already a worker now.

I am a student, at university, and not only do i study for my tests and exams at univesity, but i also have a paid work. I go to university 9-5 during the week (sometimes i stay later until around 9pm or so to get the work done). But then, on top of this, I work on saterdays. The money i get then goes onto food and transport to, and from, and whilst at university. I use the cash i get online to treat myself to the other things, such as games online, or dvds, and stuff like that.

We do. We students have to pretty much a full time job. We have to attend classes, study, and we have to get good grades/marks and do a good job or we get kicked out of the school that we are in. We have to abide by the school rules, and we have to do what we need to do. I used to work while going to school, but it got to be too much for me. I am now in now nearing my last year of school and I have so much school work that I really don't have time for a part time job.
