It is not just a part time job

October 1, 2011

Starting a life for your self can be hard. A lot of us are at the point where we are working two jobs going to school, trying to find time for family and friends while still trying to figure out what we want to do with our lives. Succeeding is not when you pay your bills on time, get an A on your Spanish test and pick up some extra hours at work. Succeeding is when you know that what you are doing is for a reason, and that everything you are doing is too help you in the future. And that starts with that part time job you have had since freshmen year.

Part time jobs are more than just some extra money to help get you through college. These jobs are there for you to utilize as resources in figuring out what types of jobs you want to proceed with. You use these jobs to test the waters. See what type of employee you want to be. Do you want to work in customer service? Do you want to work with kids? Do you like to work in teams? Do you like working alone? This is the time to answer all these questions.

Don’t dread when heading to your job after class. Rejoice in the fact that you have a job. And that you get to choose over and over what type of job you want. Also remember that your part time employers have more faith in you then you believe. They are there to help you grow, whether it is in their company or someone else’s.
