    Just seeing how many people from :tsr: work, either in a part-time or casual job, whilst at school or university.

    Above is a poll where you can select the approximate amount of time you work/have worked whilst at school or uni, during an average week.

    For instance I technically have two jobs, I waitress about 8-12 hours per week (although this can REALLY vary - the other week it was close to 18 :eek: ), and work for a promotions company. The jobs, or rather, stints, I get from the promo agency are very random though! They're well paid, but you never know when they'll ring up

    Anyway this poll was created for all you fellow students :cool:

    When i first started college my boss refused to believe how many hours i did at college and i ended up doing over 30 hours a week in a "part time" job. Sine then iv found about 12 hours a week is enough to give me enough dosh but allows you to do college work but i guess it depends on your work ethic and how many hours/subjects you do at college. When im at uni i plan to work years 1 and 2, 3rd year will be sandwich year and then work in final year so i can concentrate cos apparently lots of people on my course say its too much working in the final year.


    Just wondering how come college dont let you work visesh?

    I haven't worked this year, but I may well work next year because I have so little (read "no") money, plus it'll be good to put an employer as a reference!

    I worked, started when i was 17 in telesales which wasn't taxing at all...well...maybe thats why i got fired. Pay was ok, enough for a bit of spare cash. This year i aplied about 2-3 months before summer holidays, so i would definitely get a job...worked whilst doing my a-levels...and its tough...but i just had to take sick and i hope i don't get fired (still on probabtion). Working more in summer tho...Oxford St. is gonna be a nightmare!

    Most people have to work. I cant ask "mummy and daddy" for money, too old for that lol So you have to work to some extent to pay your expenses-- whether its buying clothes, toiletries, rent, for your car etc I'd love to do extra-curricular activites instead but I got no choice. I'm sure most ppl are in the same boat.

    My first year at college I started off working 5 hours per week, then I got a new job and was working 21, then after the second term in my second year, for some unknown reason I took on a second part time job and ended up working about 30-35 hours a week on top of full time college. By the time I fininshed college I was knackered! I didn't have a day off in three months. :eek:

    i worked about 15 hours a week during my first year at college then quit my job halfway through the college year, didnt have another job till the end of my second year (after classes and exams were over) and that lasted through till nearly the end of my third year.. the hours at that job varied from 24-30 hours a week on top of full time college hours, needless to say my grades dropped and i have to try and bring them up now grr :s:

    I'm @ college on £30/week thanks to EMA, so there's no need for me to work, but when University comes it may be a different matter, I hope I won't have to work.

    its alright for some! i didnt qualify for that as it was brought out too late for me, really annoys me how i had to work my ass off (pardon my french) at college and having a job as well that tired me out so i couldnt concentrate on my work while so many students dont even have to work cos the money's just handed to them (well not quite but still it bugs me)
