Understand Your Abilities Before Looking for a Job

Be clear about what kind of job (or internship) you can combine with your studies. When searching for a suitable job, choose the most appropriate type of employment and work schedule.

Additional information that will tell you how loyal or disloyal the employer is to students can be gleaned from the presence of phrases such as “study leave,” the ability to “combine work and study,” “long working hours,” etc. in the job posting.

It is convenient to start your career with an internship, especially if you have chosen a range of companies in which you would like to build a future career. You can find internships with flexible schedules and opportunities to combine work and study. Many of them are paid, so it’s a good opportunity to earn money, gain valuable experience in your field, and find a reasonable work-study-life balance.

Before applying for a job or internship, tell them right away that you are studying so that it is not a surprise to the employer. Say what is important and acceptable to you.

For example, whether you are willing to work overtime, travel on business, assign tasks outside of normal business hours, etc. Do not neglect the employment contract: it is the document that protects your rights.

Enlist the Support of Family and Teachers

Support is important. You can get it from parents, friends, colleagues. Do not be afraid to share your worries and ask for help. You can also try to find a mentor among teachers who can help you regain interest in your studies.

Think about what subject you are interested in, whether the teacher who teaches it is trustworthy, whether you feel comfortable talking to him, whether he motivates you to develop and whether he can help you in further professional activity.
