Is it a good idea to get a job the first semester of my freshman year of college?
I know I'm going to needed extra funds while in college and I would like to relieve some of the burden off of my parents but I'm not sure if I should wait until my second semester or start applying now. #college-job
This is coming from personal experience....I worked while I went to school and it was extremely hard! I didn’t have much of a social life due to my class load and work schedule although it was part time. As a freshman, I would suggest starting classes first, once you’ve gotten into the swings of things with your classes then find employment, maybe even some sort of work study program or a paid internship that would assist you with your college course work and funds to assist you. Best wishes!
