Hi, I’m Emily! I am a second year student at the University of Worcester studying Media and Culture. I have been working part-time in retail for just under three years, half of this time whilst […]
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.
When I started university I wasn’t sure whether having a part-time job was a good option for me, I still lived at home and my student finance was giving me enough money to get by. It wasn’t until the January of that year that I decided I was going to move out with my friends for the start of the second year and I needed to get some money together to do that.
Studying at university is all great and then you think ‘do I have enough money’. It’s very easy to spend money when it’s there but, whilst studying at university I soon realised the value and importance of the pound sterling.
