Working in college has it's pros and cons. Not everyone will understand the stress of the extra responsibility. Here's what it's like to have a job while in college.
Pro: You work for your own money. It's a good feeling to have your own money to spend as you please.
Con: You have to work for your own money. No one is handing you money whenever you get a little low on cash.
Pro: You have a break from homework, studying, and your house full of people. Sometimes you need that time away from other stress and need to get out of the house.
Con: You have to take a break from homework, studying, and people. Sometimes you miss out on study sessions or just relaxing with friends because you have to work.
Pro: You learn to manage money and time. If you're an organized person it doesn't seem so bad that you have to plan your days hour by hour to make sure everything gets done.
Con: You have to manage money and time. If you're not an organized person, keeping track of when everything has to be done is not a fun task.
Pro: You have work experience. It's something that looks great on a resume after graduation, especially if it's a job related to your major.
Con: Your work experience interferes with your nap schedule. Every college student loves a good afternoon nap, but they become less frequent when you have a work schedule that conflicts with your nap schedule.
Pro: You make new friends. Meeting new people is (almost) always a great experience.
Con: The FOMO with your other friends is real. Sometimes you have to miss out on a fun Friday night with your friends to make a little extra cash.
