How hard is it to keep up with your college grades and maintain a job at the same time?
Because I have had a part time job for awhile now and really enjoy working, plus I’d like to not be completely broke while I’m attending school. #college #work-life-balance #time-management #life-balance
Best of luck!
If you have to work I would do it part time, if you are taking full time hours with your classes. Remember you can go to school part-time if you must work. Taking as many classes as you can on line also helps. In the medical field I found it difficult to work full time and maintain a good grade point average so I dropped my work hours as much as I could. If you are able to maintain a good grade in school then by all means work. It helps to pay for everything. You can leave credit cards and student loans alone..Hope this helps..God Bless!
If your grades start to suffer, you may need to cut back on hours at work. Don't lose sight of your ultimate goal: a college degree and the professional opportunities it provides
I'm not going to say it's easy but it's definitely attainable. I work full time as a manager, I have a full time online school schedule, and I have three kids under age 5. I've maintained an A/B average up until this semester thanks to three different illnesses in a row and my lack of attention. I rely on utilizing my planner to a T. Getting an idea of the workload from each class early on by reading the syllabus is helpful. I also save vacation time so I have a few days to work with if I have a big project or a rough week.
Try to keep your priorities in check, and flex where you can.
