Students working hard I do think that high school students should have a job for a couple of reasons. High school is supposed to prepare students for the real world and in the real world you need to work to support yourself. Working young is just the process into adult hood; it lets you see how things should be done and gets you comfortable for what is to come. A big thing I have learned from having a job is how to manage my time; it is hard to deal with homework, sports, friends and work there doesn’t seem like there is enough time in a day to sleep. Learning responsibilities and deadlines before you leave high school is nothing but beneficial for you, it also opens up more opportunities to work other places and then you have someone for a reference. Working in high school also gives you time to save up some money because college is very expensive, you need to have money to buy food! I know money can be a problem in college so being smart and getting a job before college is the right decision.
