I Need Reasons Why College Students Should Work A Job?
Work experience looks awfully good on a resume (to show that you have something other than “book learning”).
Extra $$ comes in handy.
Helps with learning time management skills as well as money management when you are juggling class schedule, work schedule, study schedule.
Helps gain independence from parents if they would otherwise be providing college funds, OR helps you not be dependent on student loans and getting in debt prior to starting your career.
If you can find a job in a field similar to what you are studying, you can gain practical experience in this field to help you determine whether or not this is actually the right field for you.
Social networking–many times it’s not what you know, it’s who you know, and working with the public may help open doors down the road (especially in a small town and/or “college town”).
Busy college kids may be more likely to stay out of trouble and not get caught up in the whole frat party scene that could end up hurting you academically or even get you in criminal trouble.
Hope that helps!
She would alternate working with College –After her First
Year in College —she dropped out –got a job with GAP
as a sales person —said she learned more there than
at college—dealing with people,etc This was in
California ,by the way
With money in her pocket left over after paying her Tuition
and the rest—she coasted thru another year at College—
Then spent a year with WET SEAL becoming an
Assistant Manager —and so on !
Graduated with Honors and money in her pocket—
the envy of her Classmates
Within a week she was interviewed by a Well known
Consulting Firm —she was completely at ease —
hired immediately is still with them in a Higher-up position
Says she owes it to her “Alternating Education/Work ”
and advises everyone to do it that way —
I am very proud of her and her initiative !
Good Luck with your speech.
