I'm currently a second year Computer Science student, and over the summer I was offered an amazing job in IT which is really relevant to what I want to do in the future and was too good to turn down. Although I have flexibility in my hours to fit work in around lectures, I am still working full time. I am now applying for placement jobs for next year and was wondering if I should mention that I work full time. I've found it really challenging at times and my organisational skills have improved so much, and I want to be able to talk about this, but I don't want to come across as being reckless. Any advice would be much appreciated.

If you have the grades to match I don't see why not? Would look pretty good to have good grades and a full time job.

I think they would be impressed, it's like someone doing an online or part-time degree whilst working, it shows hard work.

If you got good grades still then absolutely. It shows that you're very hardworking and willing to get good experience.
