Whilst studying at college, it is possible to also take on a part time job or internship to help improve your work based skills at the same time. Education is very important, but building up experience and knowledge of the working world is very beneficial and the earlier you start, the easier it will be able to secure a full time job once you leave college or university. Plus, it will also help you to save for any university fees once you have completed your A Levels. Everyone knows that university tuition courses can cost quite a lot, as well as the living expenses on top, so it is well worth saving as much as you can before you start your degree.
It can be easy to find a career for college students by looking out in the local newspaper or online job sites. There are many different part time jobs on offer to students, so it is well worth looking through. Employers understand that juggling education with part time work can sometimes be tricky, so you may be lucky enough to find a boss that is willing to be flexible about your hours and let you choose which ones are the best to fit around your college studies.
Working in a shop is a good idea, as many retail jobs do not often require previous experience. So long as you are polite, friendly and able to deal with customers professionally, any retail employer would be happy to take you on. You will of course need basic mathematical skills in order to be able to work the tills and calculate any change to give the customer. Training is often provided before or on your first day, so you should not have any problems with getting to grips with the tasks involved.
Other ideas are applying for restaurant or café jobs. This may involve cashier work, waitressing, preparing food or washing up. You may have to start at the bottom and work your way up, but it is a great way to show future employers that you are serious about getting started in the working world and are willing to learn and improve. Having a part time job whilst at college will also look great on a CV.
Casual work is also available, such as flyering and promotional work. These are often on an ad hoc basis, so you can accept work as and when you have time. Sign up to the many promotional agencies online to receive job alerts directly to your email address or mobile phone.
