Student life can be challenging and demanding at times, but it’s also a lot of fun and for the most part, responsibility free. Some students take on a part time job to help supplement their income while studying, but for others a part time job can be a productive way to spend some free time. So why should you consider a student job while you study? And what are the benefits of this?

What are the advantages of a student job?

There are a number of advantages and benefits to securing a part time job or student working role during your first, second or third year at university. These advantages include:

  • Enhancing your CV- working a part time job, no matter where at, can give your CV a real boost. This doesn’t have to be related to your degree area to help your CV stand out, as any working role will show responsibility and an ability to juggle deadlines and commitments.
  • Learn new skills- whether its retail or hospitality, a part time job can help you learn new skills that will be transferable to your preferred job at the end of your degree. From teamwork and workplace politics, to customer support and handling money, a part time job can provide more than just extra cash.
  • Make some money- student life can be expensive and a part time job can help you make some money in your spare time. This will add some flexibility to your budget.
