Participating in a work study program or just being employed part time can play a big role in your success. On campus jobs can help you master your time management and interpersonal skills. They can provide you with great learning experiences and valuable relationships with faculty and staff.
Being employed in a job related to your future career goals will prove to have even better benefits. However, over working can do the opposite for academic success. Finding a work – life balance will be a skill you can use even after graduating. Be realistic with your schedule and remember your health should always come first. Without that, you are likely to perform negatively in class and in your workplace.
