Johannes’s Answer

First off, I want to say that any job is better than no job. My superiors have often told me that they will not hire recent college grads who did not work while they were in school. Some graduates say they did not work while in school because they thought their studies were too much to handle, or that they didn't work over the summers because they thought they needed a break from the difficult schoolwork. Like it or not, that comes across as lazy, and if you have the same degree as someone else, but they worked and you didn't, you will be at a disadvantage.

That said, it is always best to strive for a job that is in your field of study. I majored in accounting and was able to work as an accounting assistant for a couple years in college, and I also had the opportunity to work as a finance intern for a summer. Don't expect too much too soon though. I worked in the college cafeteria during my freshman year, and it was a blast.


Best of luck!

Josh’s Answer

One great college job is as a Brand Ambassador for a company with a local location at or near your university. Your responsibility is basically just to promote the brand on-campus to your friends and give away free stuff. One of my friends was an ambassador for Shophouse and got paid great money and also constantly had free Shophouse meal vouchers to give away (he made friends with EVERYBODY).

I very much agree that any job is better than no job. Ideally make it one that you're passionate about but it doesn't have to be. I worked at an information desk / convenience store in the student union while also volunteering for a large student-run organization during college. The former helped pay bills while the latter fell in line with my interests and was a resume builder.


Showing diversity of experiences and challenging yourself is way more important than grades, generally speaking. When interviewing candidates, I ask about overcoming challenges; I'm looking for grit and determination. I couldn't care less about your grades. More technical careers require good grades to advance into more schooling (eg medical school, law school, etc) but for the working world as long as you know your stuff and you are a creative thinker, you will qualify.

Crystal’s Answer

When I was in college pursuing my Chemical Engineering degree, I worked at Wendy's and Belk. The advantage of working at Wendy's was that I did not need to purchase clothes to work; my uniform was provided for me. Also, the hours were very flexible. I was able to find a co-op assignment after my freshman year, and I worked as a Chemical Engineer for alternating semesters until I graduated. I graduated in 5 years instead of 4 years like my peers; however, I did not have to work during the semesters that I was in school because the co-op assignment paid extremely well. When I graduated, I had 12 months of job experience in the Chemical Industry with an excellent GPA because I was able to focus on school during the semester instead of work. Also consider that the high paying co-op/intern assignments are typically for those with Engineering or Business degrees, so you need to select the appropriate degree to allow for you to do this.
