Part-time work & study: Why you should do it
Friday, February 8th, 2019
There’s nothing worse than being skint but still having a full uni schedule to get through. It’s a constant struggle for students everywhere! You’re forced to pick between a rigid work rota and grueling study timetable. More often than not, people tend to pick school over work.
Luckily, with Catapult, you can fit work around your study, which is doubly great because there are a TON of benefits to working part-time while you study.
Here are our top reasons to love part-time work while you study!
Becoming a master of the balancing act!
It’s important to study, but it’s also good to take breaks. Taking time out from the books will improve your ability to manage your own time and give your brain a much-needed rest. You’ll return to your desk feeling fresh and have some extra cash to spare.
It’s great for your CV
Getting professional experience, whatever it is, looks great to future employers! Part-time jobs can teach you a lot about how to conduct yourself in a workplace and show off your ambitious nature. And that’s not to mention the myriad of other skills you’re bound to pick up on the go.
Cold, hard, cash
You’ll have to forgive us for being so obvious, but it’s true! The money you’ll earn working part-time will always come in handy for nights out, new trainers, holidays, whatever you want, really!
Uni is also a great time to start building some good money saving habits! Check out our post on budgeting to learn more.
