How to Find a Good Part Time Job

There are many reasons why one would want to take up a part-time job. One reason could be that they are student and therefore do not have time to participate in a job. So it’s important to try to find a part-time job that will fulfill their needs as well as bring in cash flow.  Here are some tips to help you find your next part-time job.

One tip is to remember that there are hundreds of students just like you trying to find a student job also.  So it is important to be creative about what you look for. Finding a good job is not impossible but it does require some effort.

One thing to start doing when looking for a part-time job is to look locally for any openings. Check to see if your school has a college and career center. Potential employers often look to those places for new recruits. Also check out listings in the local or school newspaper. Companies also often use those means to find new employees.

If you tried that but it still doesn’t work, try checking the Internet.  The World Wide Web offers good opportunities for you to find a good part time job. Websites like www.flipgigs.com allows students to make a FREE account. To start looking for work, make your account today!

Once when you land an interview, be sure to keep a few things in mind.

-Be punctual- Why is it important to be punctual? It doesn’t give off a good impression if you are late. So arrive early! Review in your mind what things you would like to say. That way you won’t look/feel rushed. Remember it is better to be 15 minutes early than 15 minuets late.  Ever so often there may be times that emergencies come up that make you late, but being late constantly makes you unreliable. By being punctual you show respect to the other person. You prove that you can be trusted, are reliable, and are professional. When trying to get a job, especially as a student, it is important to have those qualities.

-Dress and Grooming- Make sure that your attire is appropriate for the occasion. The more business-like the better. It shows that you take the job seriously. Sight is a very important factor that we use in our daily lives to judge people. Certain studies state that inappropriate dress and grooming have caused over 40 percent of job rejections. Good and clean dress and grooming gives off a good impression and makes you feel more confident and better about your own self.

-Conduct and Speech- this goes without saying, but being polite and proper is essential. Try to stray away from using slang words. This shows the employer that you strive to talk in a way that sounds well educated. And it is always good to be polite in your daily life, but even more so in a professional setting.

In the end, finding a job may be hard, but don’t give up!! There is a job waiting for you out there somewhere. You just got to find it!
