Benefits of combining work & study
Apart from the obvious benefit of providing ready cash, having a part-time job can provide you with an important addition to your CV: experience! It is not so much a matter of what you do but what you have learnt from it, and your ability to demonstrate this to a future employer.
There are two basic kinds of work experience: general and specific.
General experience can be gained in any job and will help you to develop skills such as:
- learning how to deal with colleagues and customers
- working as part of a team
- problem solving
- commercial awareness
It helps enormously to be able to show your future graduate employer that you actually know what it's like having a job!
Specific work experience is experience in a field that you want a career in. Showing that you have already worked in a certain field or environment will help convince employers you are serious about that career path.
