Laurie’s Answer

Hi, Valiliano!
This is a little challenging to answer without knowing more information about you. One thing to keep in mind are laws and regulations for minors working varies from state to state. States have different rules about how old someone can be before they can hold a job, and there are also rules around what hours minors can work and how many hours per week. If you are a minor (usually under the age of 18), you will need to learn about these rules first.
If you are old enough to have a job in your state, you can work when you are a student. There are many businesses that like to hire students and they will give you valuable work experience.

Song’s Answer

It's perfectly fine to have a part-time job while you're a student, but remember, your primary goal should be to focus on your studies.

Some students fall into the trap of being attracted to the immediate gratification of earning money and end up wanting to work more hours. This can lead to a loss of interest in school because the rewards of education aren't instantly visible. However, it's crucial not to prioritize immediate earnings over long-term educational benefits.

Also, bear in mind that there are laws limiting the number of hours students can work, ensuring you have enough time for school. Trust me, as a student, the long-term benefits of education far outweigh the short-term gains from a part-time job.
