Your student years can be some of the best years of your life. You spend your days enriching your mind and ultimately moving closer towards starting your career. Your life generally revolves around studying and socialising, however many students keep themselves further occupied by getting themselves part-time hospitality jobs.
If you are a student and are worried that your already crammed schedule wouldn’t be able to accommodate the added pressure of a job, read on to find out why getting yourself a part-time job is a great addition to student life:
You Gain Experience
Student life is all about expanding your horizons and increasing your job opportunities in the future. Getting involved in part-time hospitality jobs is a great way to enhance your CV and make you more desirable to potential employers. Whist hospitality may not be the sector that you want to move into long-term, holding down a job while you are studying is a great way to demonstrate your commitment, flexibility and a strong work ethic. These are all qualities that employers will look for when they are recruiting.
You Meet Awesome New People
One of the best things about part-time hospitality jobs is the opportunities that you have to meet and get to know different people from all walks of life. Learning to deal and engage with a variety of different people will greatly boost your confidence and increase your self-awareness.
Working with Urban People’s temporary hospitality team means that you will be exposed to working across a huge range of exciting venues and events. You will be engaging with clients, managers, staff and the public.
Earn Yourself Some Extra Cash
Everyone loves a bit of extra spending money! Whether you need party money, rent money or money towards paying off your student loan, every little bit helps! When earning your own hard-earned cash you will be less likely to spend it frivolously too! You may learn a thing or two about budgeting (or saving?)
Over the last few years there has been a rise in the number of students that have taken on jobs, with statistics revealing that eight out of ten students now get a job to ease financial pressures.
You Get to Have Fun and a Break From Studying
Student life comes with it’s own pressures: looming deadlines, tests and exams. Distraction in the form of a part-time hospitality job can be a fun and healthy way to alleviate stress.
