It is not fun to be broke when you’re an undergraduate student. Some extra money is always nice to help us survive our book-dominated lives. The question that stands, however, is what part time job is best for us students. We must remember that the fundamental nature of these jobs is that they do not rule over our lives. Finding such a job is still not easy because in the end if someone is willing to pay you they are willing to suck the marrow right out of you.
I believe the best part time job a student could do is teach. Tuitions are a good and rather healthy way to earn some cash. Keeping in mind it has now become part of our culture and is definitely a trend followed by more than the majority, it is not hard to find someone ready to pay you to teach their child. It is, though, a huge responsibility and is perhaps not a field every student can cope up with. It is conceivably in parents’ nature to expect wonders once they pay someone to teach their children which could cause some uncomfortable circumstances for the poor student who just wanted some extra money (unless you’re Houdini).
The next “best” option could be a call centre. Outside Pakistan, that is. Call centers are easy to work at with flexible working hours, and they result in quick cash. The average call centre here, on the other hand, is a petite, malodorous room with a few historical pieces of computer like objects which are nearing extinction. Not such a good idea probably. But desperate times call for desperate measures.
Going down on our list we will also find office work somewhere. Small clerical jobs that don’t need much a mind could be an easy enough job, which is why you don’t get paid much and if you do you have to do a lot of dense work that will make you sleepy and will bore you right out of your socks. Folding letters and putting them into envelopes is a nice example. Imagine doing that for a thousand letters. Fold after fold, envelope after envelope. Just thinking about it makes me sleepy. It can, though, help the philosopher in you rise. Questions like: “Who am I?”, “What am I doing here?” “What am I doing with my life?” can be something you begin to seek answers to in those few hours.
In the end, however, it depends on the student, their want and need to earn extra cash and their willingness because jobs are done for two things only. One: to earn. And two: to learn. It is safe to say that right now we do enough learning at the university and the part time jobs are just for the earn. So whatever job it is that we get, as long as we keep our studies unharmed we’re ready to do it.
