Jobs at young age
 | 
Singapore Am2de 
So, I am 20 and I still don't have any job. My parents don't allow me to do parttime job, they want me to focus on study. I get monthly allowance which is pretty high compared to my need (I usually save 55-60% of allowance every month). They think I should get job once I finish my university so I can get better job at some excellent firm. But I have seen in many western countries that students usually support himself rather than getting financial help from parents. If you were a parent, would you say your kid to support himself/herself on his/her own during university or would you support him/her financially so he/she can focus on study.

I mean it's not a bad alternative getting an allowance from your parents but I've seen it backfire too. Some high school friends of mine started uni right after graduation and then did nothing but study for 3 years. At that point they'd basically never worked an entire day in their lives which is not a great look if you're employing. No matter the field it's not to your advantage not having any work experience if you're 21-25 and looking to get a job.

It's great that your parents are financially supporting you. Just, don't be that guy that has 0 work experience anywhere after finishing a 4+ year degree. Even at a coffee shop or mcdonalds look's good on CVs.

I'm 20yo jobless student myself. I could get a part time job (4 hours a day), but that would interfere with my studies for sure

+1 Great advice. My parents have always helped support me, but also made sure I worked. Started working at 14 and no gaps in employment even in college. I am now going back to school for my third degree and am still working.

Get a job. Gives you real world experience and teaches you how to communicate and deal with problems. Studying doesn't teach that.

You get an allowance at 20 years old, what kind of family you gots man trade with me. And I would support my kid if he tried but couldn't find a job, but realistically a lot of parents don't care as long as you're doing something with your life.

aren't we discussing having a job while attending university vs no job while attending university? because this is what I was referring to even with a shity part-time you will learn real world experience and deal with problems/ppl while earning some money in the middle with the increasingly competitive labor market it is crucial to be proactive and do things before finish the degree (as irrelevant as they may seem ) fresh graduates, where i work, who do not know how to speak a word are common. it's embarrassing

One of my first times ever at wal-mart I saw this random little kid in the freezer
2020-12-06 19:33
I'd help him, but a part time job(around 4 hours) would also help tbh.

Just get job that involves some sort of physical activity but less to none brainactivity. If you pair it that way it really shouldnt interfere with ur studiesat all. Mb try newspaperdelivery if thats an option, or if you live in a part of the world where snow is a thing, jsut ask your neighbours if you can take care of getting the snow from theirs pavements. Thats something you can do in the morning, it gety you phsically active and even might help to get you head clear while you do it. Pair those activities with some good music on ur cellphone and u might even start to like the work, especially if its well paid. What actually might not be the case in theese to examples. Other option would be some lowlevel prodction facility, wich can be utterly boring but most of the times its much better paid and weather isnt a thing. I hope this helped.

If your parents are willing to cover your studies entirely without you working take full advantage of it. Assuming you are doing a degree that will allow you to get a pretty good job then there is not point in doing a job mid studies. It will just hurt your studies and not give you anything of value. What I mean by that is you won't be able to get a skilled job without a degree (comparable to the jobs you can get after completing your studies), and so potential employers won't really care. Not only that, but because it's so different the experience won't really be comparable either. What you can do is look for internship opportunities mid studies or during breaks. Those can give you more insight or career paths and give you more relevant work experience. Yes it isn't paid, but money isn't an issue for you (clearly), and it could help a lot with future employment, especially at more well reputed firms.

It should be the parents responsibility to pay for their kid up until the kid finishes university and can get a normal job

unless american, give the kid debt that they will never break free of, or let them go to trade school so they can retire at 60
