So, it’s the start of a whole new year. Maybe you’ve got some New Year’s resolutions that you strongly intend to keep this year. Or maybe you’re a bit strapped for cash after spoiling all your loved ones over the holidays!
Either way, January seems as good a time as any to look for a part-time job – we’re all students who could always do with a few extra pennies!
As I mentioned in my budgeting blog, one of the best ways to increase your income whilst at university is to get a part-time job.
Before coming to Worcester, I was very skeptical about getting a part-time job, as I knew I wanted to focus on my studies and I thought that having a job wouldn’t allow me to do that properly.
Being a drama ambassador for the university is one of the jobs I have at the university as part of the Earn as you Learn scheme. Most of the drama ambassadors are third year students and so I thought I’d write a blog post to tell everyone why you should become a drama ambassador when the job is advertised later in the year.
When I go back to my first year, I remember that the reality check showed I needed a part-time job to cover all of my costs. Money were flying away as it was the year of exploring Worcester, travelling around England, my new home, attending many social events and buying all the books I needed for my course.
