Do you recommend work study programs?

Asked Colorado Springs, Colorado

I am not yet attending college, but several people have already recommended work study to me as a generally useful tool. What would you recommend for a prospective chemistry major? #work

That's a maybe.  Of course, I'd recommend to partake in a work study program if you can - it might help your record in regard to work experience.  However, it really comes down to whether you can without it hurting your grades.  All I can say is to give it a try and see if you're okay with it.

HI Abigail,

I hope you are having an amazing day.  I do recommend work study.  You will gain work experience and you will make money for working.  If you are selected for work study, it would be great.  See if they can place you with someone in your department so that you are able to learn from the professor. 

If not selected, see if the chair of the department has any research opportunities for undergraduate students; however, make sure that you will have the time to study, do homework, and enjoy your college time.  So, if you have the opportunity to work, work.  Gain work experience and learn as much as possible. 

Good luck!

I believe work study is a great way to get college education. As you take courses in college, you will also be getting real work experience, most likely in the field you pare taking courses in. So, it will help enhance your learning, will give you work experience and will result in great job opportunities when you gradue from college.
