As a student it is important to learn to make as well as manage money well. A majority of students in universities find themselves short of funds with having to manage partying, buying food, paying for the accommodation, purchasing study books all at once.
Sooner or later it is a good idea to find a suitable job for a small yet steady source of income which will also look impressive on your resume. Of course, the biggest concern is that your job doesn’t clash with your lecture schedules.
Thankfully, these days there are more avenues for jobs for students which allow for a perfect (well at least a good) balance between studies and work and your social life too. Jobs for students can be both full-time and part time (which is what you’ll prefer) and many work as interns, assistants and helpers in retail shops.
