大学生该出去兼职吗？Should University Students do Part-time Jobs?
In today’s job hunting market, many companies tend to hire students who have job experiences. It seems that working experience seems to be an indispensable part of job hunting. However, in my humble opinion, students should focus on their study instead of sacrificing their precious time to meet the short-term financial needs. The disadvantages of doing part-time jobs outweigh its advantages.
First of all, part-time jobs deprive students’ time of study, entertainment, sleep and other social activities. Wishing to find a balance between academia and job, one may find himself caught in a dilemma. On one hand, he hopes that he can have some contribution on academics study, on the other hand, he wish he can make more money though part-time jobs. But the truth is, you can't have your cake and eat it too. More evidence indicates that students working more than 20 hours a week have lower grades; some of them even fall in the exams.
Second, some students may become so preoccupied with money-making that they can not focus their attention on studying. The part-time may help ease the students’ financial burden, but may have negative effects on them. According to the survey, many working youth expressed a cynical attitude toward schoolwork and future life. They even play truant to make money. What’s worse, most of the part-time jobs offer students’ limited value to their self-improvement. Serving at the fast food restaurant or being a salesman in a supermarket won’t give you too much experience. Sometimes, it’s just a waste of time.
In summary, the students should quit their part-time jobs and enjoy the lives on campus. They should view study as their priority in university days. It’s not worthy to go outside to do the jobs.
