Should uni student start a nigh shift full-time job or normal part time job?

I'm a full time student, but wanna try some related jobs to gain experience. I can only find full-time at this moment. I'm not available on the day time, so I'm thinking about the nigh shift full-time jobs, is this ok? Any suggestion for me, to take night shift full time jobs or part time? #college-jobs #student-development #part-time

Without knowing everything about your specific situation it's hard to advise you individually but if you are looking to just gain experience and can go without the additional money for the time being I might suggest volunteering your time at a specific company or job you would be interested in working for in the future. Most places would be more willing to accept your volunteer work and you would have more control over your particular experience area and location.


As far as working a night shift, there have been multiple studies over recent years identifying the negative health affects of working that kind of schedule. If you have to make that decision do so with that information in mind.

You might be able to make full-time night shift jobs work if you can still handle the course load. If the job is related to the career you're trying to enter it's worth it, but it might be wise to reduce the amount of hours of university work you're doing to compensate for doing a full-time job. Make sure that you are sleeping sufficiently and don't let yourself go health-wise.
