Second, when taking part-time jobs, students can acquire more experiences and gain their skills. if they can find a job that having factors relating to their study, they can apply what they learn in books to their tasks. Therefore, they will have more oppurtunities to get the good work in the future because many companies nowadays need employees who are experienced in their fields. Furthermore, students also learn communication skill and time management skill. They have to meet various kinds of people and respond to many kinds of circumstances. Part-time jobs occupy time in a day, so students should plan to fit everything in a schedule.

Some people argue that a part-time job may influence students' academic performance. The students may not have enough time left to do the assignments sometimes or feel tired to study. However, students can balance working with studying in order to not only earn money but also study well.
