Having a part-time (or full-time) job while attending college is common for many students. Whether it’s bussing tables at a local restaurant between classes or stocking bookshelves at the campus library, having a job in college allows you to earn money and gain experience while in school.
You know you want a job when you go to college, but with so many options, you are unsure which is the best fit for you. Should you go with a part-time work study job, a full-time job alongside evening class, or a part-time job and regular class schedule?
But there’s another option for students who want to boost their resume and help pay tuition while going to school — attending a college where students work alongside faculty and staff. This is known as a work college.
