Is it better to participate in a federal work study program or to find a job outside the program to help pay for school?

I am going college fairly soon and have realized like most people that the price tag of a postsecondary education can be very high. With that said I'm not sure which would be more financially beneficial for me and my family. #job-search #college-bound #cost-benefit

Hi Dyrel,


Another thought is whether the Federal work study will give you experience that will better position you for employment after you finish school.


All the best!

Hey Dyrel,


You may want to put together a cost benefit analysis. What are the pros if you do Federal Work Study? Does is turn into a good paying job once you graduate? If you stayed will that Federal job help subsidize your tuition for school?


The same questions might apply to the outside job that you're considering. There are a lot of factors involved here that you can flush out. Which job is easier to travel to? If you must support your family which job will pay more?
