The Benefits of Working While in College

Working part-time while you complete your education can bring many advantages, both in the present life and in your future success in life. At Integrity Staffing Solutions, we have placed many students on temporary, seasonal or part-time assignments that help them get a head start on their careers, learn life skills, or simply earn some extra cash to help with essential expenses or fun indulgences. We’re happy to report that most of them wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in the world. Here are some reasons why.

 

Money smarts.

You may have heard or read about money management, but there’s nothing like hands-on practice to make it really sink in. Saving and budgeting get much more real when it’s your hard-earned money in question instead of your parents’.

 

Time management.

This is one of those life skills we talked about earlier. Having responsibilities to a job as well as to schoolwork, play time and rest time will help you learn to balance, prioritize and schedule your activities.

 

Experience.

Part-time or temporary work in your chosen field is an excellent way to get your foot in the door and your career off the ground. If the job isn’t in your projected career path, you will still learn professional basics such as answering to a boss and getting along with co-workers. Plus, it will look great on your resume when you start looking for a full-time position after graduation.

 

Contacts.

Even if you don’t go back to your part-time employer after you graduate, you will have acquired some valuable connections with people in your industry who could provide references or referrals to your dream job.

 

Juggling work and school can be difficult. But when you consider what a competitive edge it gives you in so many ways, we believe almost everyone should give it a try. The rewards are yours to reap.
