Top tips for finding the perfect part-time job
October 03, 2017
Jessica has some great tips to help you find the perfect part-time job to fit alongside your studies.
Find somewhere flexible
Finding a job that understands your schedule, whether it’s school, extra curricular projects, placements, or volunteering, means being able to fit in a part time job you love around your other passions. That way, you have all the benefits of working, whilst still not sacrificing another area of your life. You’re not letting anyone, or yourself down if you’re not committing to time you cannot give, and you will feel far happier working out a work schedule on your terms. Explore Learning is FAB for this, because they understand you may have university, school, or other commitments, and they encourage you to pursue your passions.
Meet the team
Joining a wonderful team can have such a positive impact! No matter what company or work place you join, your colleagues often become your support system and friends. Starting a new job means meeting new people, and if all your friends are at different universities, or taking gap years, you can still find fantastic friendships in your work team. Developing new friendships at work is great; you’re all of different ages and from different walks of life and you can learn something from all of them.
Make your CV stand out
If you’re going into an interview, you’re not just a name at the top of a CV and a list of grades achieved. You are all of your passions, hobbies, interests, experiences, and memories. You bring something unique to the job you’re applying for: you! So don’t sell yourself short, and believe that you have all the potential and ambition to ace that interview and be a part of something special. And if you’re looking, Explore provides such a rewarding job, with a brilliant tutor team behind you.
