As is revealed in the bar chart, the proportion of the students taking part-time jobs has changed. The proportion increases slowly from freshmen to juniors, while that of the seniors surges to 88.24%.
Taking a part-time job has both pros and cons. Firstly, college students can get a chance to put their ideas into practice. Secondly, to take a part-time job provides those students who are eager to be independent a sense of achievement. Also, students who shoulder heavy burden from their family can make some money to lessen their parents’ financial crisis. Nevertheless, issues will rise. In order to take part-time jobs, some students are frequently absent from classes and even cannot pass the final exam. Therefore, they may lose their credits as well as their diplomas.
As far as I am concerned, I’ll strike for a balance between my study and part-time jobs. If I do not have enough spare time, I choose to abandon part-time jobs without hesitation, throwing myself into my major task, that is, study.
