    I'm currently at uni studying a degree but my hours are extremely limited, like 5 hours per week. Also, I only have two weeks left of classes left. After that, I'll be free of education for about 4 months. I'm looking to get a full-time job in that space but I'm under the impression that places will be reluctant to hire me because I am also at uni and that is my top priority. Is that the case or not? Do you know anybody that works a full-time job whilst at uni?

    I'd say the best thing is to try and find a part-time job and then book as much overtime as possible then. I know someone who works 48h per week at Sainsbury's (gap year) but she's only contracted 12h pw.

    If the hours fit then they will be ok, but uni hours can change, so they might not like it. they may ofc have flexible contracts which you can fit round.

    That sounds like a good idea. Thanks!

    Positive there is you're not locked down to working the whole time, it's easier to take breaks when you want them :cute:
