Juggling High School and a job can be difficult, but it has its benefits. Having a job has it perks because you are able to create relationships coworkers and customers. The downside of this; however, it can be difficult to achieve activities in your personal life. For someone who has never worked before, they may think that a job is a terrible thing; however, when you find a comfortable work place with a friendly atmosphere, work can be actually somewhat enjoyable. Having a job, gives students the opportunity to gain new friendships with all types of people from all ages and the moments you share with them makes a hard job not seem so terrible.

As you learn and grow from each day you work you become adapted to the lifestyle of working. With time, you learn to balance your life, meaning that you eventually learn how to plan in advance.

Another benefit of having a job is the paycheck that comes with it. As young adults, many of us want to experience new possibilities like going to a concert, visiting a city or just simply money for gas. It is easier to be able to create fun when you have money to go along with it, but it also gives you another life skill to learn. This life skill is money management. With this you must learn how to make a paycheck last. It is also important to make sure that what you are spending your money on is beneficial to the way you live.

Each and everyone of us are different and unique in our own ways. We have our different tastes in the lifestyle we live and and life goals, but it is important to be able to learn these skills in some way or another. Having a job is somewhat like school; you must learn, get your work done, and be responsible. While some believe it takes away from their social life in high school, I believe that once you become adapted you’ll be able to live a normal life just as any other high school student.
