It is easier to get student loans but it is more beneficial in the long run to get a part time job to limit the need for the debt.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 19, 2013
Debt Consolidation USA publishes an article that discusses why college students will benefit from working while in school. In an article entitled “On College Finances: Why You Should Earn While In School,” the debt relief website explains that it can help the college student head off any financial problem.
On October 14, the leading online resource for debt relief information targets college students in their latest article. The article states how students are forced to put themselves in debt just to complete their college education. Debt Consolidation USA is concerned about how this arrangement will put the young ones in debt even before they can earn their own money.
This is why the debt relief company encourages college students to be open about earning while in college. That way, they can secure their college finances and make it more affordable without too much debt.
The article states that it is easier to get student loans but it is more beneficial in the long run to get a part time job to limit the need for the debt. The article reveals that college students spend an average of 15 hours in their classes and possibly another 15 to 20 hours more studying. That is 35 hours only. Even if the student spends 15 hours everyday for sleep and other personal activities, they are still left with 28 hours of nothing to do. Debt Consolidation USA encourages college students to just use this time to take a part time job.
The article states 5 reasons why getting a part time job is beneficial for college students.
1. It helps them lower the need for student debt.
2. It gives them the money to spend for daily expenses.
3. It teaches college students time management skills.
4. It allows students to practice managing their money.
5. It gives them valuable work experience that will give them an edge when they apply for work after graduation.
The article proceeds to provide a list of jobs that college students will be eligible to work on. These include internships, jobs in restaurants and retail stores, tutoring, babysitting and other on-campus tasks. All of these can earn the student an average of $5-$8 an hour. Some jobs can go as high as $15. That can really help with daily expenses - at the very least.
