Working as a part time student can be difficult and daunting for students. At the same time working as a part time can be confidence builder, and can be fun. I had been worked in Helping Hands Foundation from Australia in 2007 until 2009. My position was an entepreneurship trainer for senior high school students in Banda Aceh. I got this job from fourth semester. But, started be a new student in Syiah Kuala University, I had failed for 15 times in job opportunity before I worked in HHF.
I had three reasons why working part time was fun. First, it gave one opportunity to earn money. Second, got a new experience in working. Third, provided an excellent opportunity for learning independently.
First of all, working part time provided one excellent opportunity to earn money. It was very easy when student could earn money by themselves. They could earn money besides studying, and they used it for college tuition, to buy books, and clothes.
Secondly, it gave a new experience in working. Students who have experience in working were very easy to find a job after graduating from college. Experience of working and studying were very different. It was a great opportunity if they could collaborate between working and studying experience. For example, the recent graduate was not easy to find job without experience. If they had experience, they would find job easyly.
Finally, working as a part time worker provided an excellent opportunity for learning independently. To be an independent student was a thing of pride because they got responsible in their life. Responsible was one thing important in life for doing something. Independent was not easier, but they must learn more about responsibility
In this conclusion, working as a part time student was enjoyable. Although they were studying now, they could get money, more experience, and be independent. All of this was very important for next future to get their goal.
