Issue:Part time job is good or not?

In recent years, more and more college students choose to take part-time jobs in or outside school. Many teachers complain than there are fewer and fewer students who pay attention to their study. Should we put the blame on part-time jobs? Is it a good thing for college students to work part time?
It is true that excellent academic: qualifications are something essential if you want to find a good job after you leave school. But on the other hand, for those who can easily get high marks in examinations, it is worth trying to find something to do in their spare time. Then they can get some work experience which is as valuable as their academic achievement.
From what I have said, it is difficult to judge whether taking part time jobs is good or bad. It depends on how you deal with the relation ship between working and learning. If you can balance it well, you are sure to get enough knowledge as well as working experience, so as to get ready for you future success.

    I totally agree with the theory of balance that the writer states. Actually, what one learns in society is in some aspects more valuable than in school because it’s a process of accumulating practical experience when we are working in society university.

    I agree with both of you, balance is what we need in all aspects of life. Education definitely helps us to mold our future and show us the right direction but a part-time job can actually help us to apply the knowledge gained in schools and implement it in real situations and like they say experience is the best teacher.

    I think part-time jobs can help students gain more comprehensive abilities without spending so much time. However, things always go wrong when you are focus on both your works and study. I think you should balance time you spend and have your own schedule.

    Looking over the post i agree that this is a defiantly a balancing act, i know a lot of people that work multiple jobs and go to school its just a matter of how much a person can handle at once
