Today I’m going to share what I did in my college life and how I spend my valuable time. In my first semester of college, I only tried to get good grades and spend rest of my time on social media or by sleeping. Think about it how lazy I was! But soon I realized that only getting good grades cannot ensure my future career. By doing part-time job related to my field of study can ensure a permanent job and can also add some cash. You can ask why you need to earn when you have plenty of it? But trust me if you can earn your own pocket money by yourself, then it will boost up your confidence level.

In my point of view, I have seen most of the students pass their golden period of time by roaming aimlessly or pass time on social media or by sleeping. Try to remember friend ‘The world is not the bed of roses’    
I have also wasted a lot of time in my student life and at the time when I realized I soon started to look for a part-time job. According to my personal experience, I can give you a suggestion and some tips on which based on your need to choose the right job for you.

Right Part-Time Job

Choosing a right part-time job you need to very carefully consider some of these factors-

Location: Job location shouldn’t be far from your resident or campus.

Time-Schedule: You need to check time-schedule of the job. You should choose a job that can hamper your studies. Always remember that study is the prime job of you.

Payment: Try to find a job where payment is high enough and you can gain a skill which will help you to build you your career.

Library jobs are one of my favorite jobs as being a student you need to buy a lot of books but if you become a library assistant then you can save your money from the expenses that you need to buy books. Moreover, you can interact with students and professors which will broaden your knowledge and ideas. You can also get plenty of free time and can do your homework.
