As we enter the adult world, we eventally learn that we cannot rely on our parents for money. It is now your duty to apply for a job to pay for your college tuition, food, and other necessities. College can be stressful because  assignments, labs, and exams can get a little overwhelming. Having an on-campus job can actually relieve some of the stress. Here are 5 reasons why you should get an on-campus job at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

2. Location

If you live on residence, then an on-campus job will be especially great because you might not even have a car to drive to work. You save yourself from having to travel to another place. You also won’t get stuck in traffic because you can walk to work. How convenient!

3. Flexible Work Schedule

You might have a large gap of time to work for a few hours before your next class. Working on-campus allows you to work between classes. Your manager will have to work around your class schedule. Usually, they are very flexible with your work schedule.

5. Meeting New People

The¬†University of Hawaii at Manoa is such a large campus that we hardly ever get to socialize with other students. Working on-campus allows you to make new friends. You can ask for advice on what classes other students recommend taking for certain credits. It’s good to make new friends!
