This is my first year working at The University of Akron while also taking classes full-time. Usually, I would reserve working for summertime so that I wouldn’t be too busy and overwhelmed.
However, this semester, I started working at an on-campus job. I really appreciate the opportunity to make a little bit of money and learn some very important skills that I can take into my professional career.
In addition to taking 15 credits, I am also a copyeditor for the school newspaper and taking on an officer position for a literary journal run by students. I don’t have too much time to spare for working and building other professional experiences like internships or shadowing.
