Troy C Van Sickle knows the difficulties many students face when they need to pay their college fees. While many students take loans to pay for their education, some take up odd jobs that help pay for their education. Whatever job you decide to take up to pay for your college education, you must maintain a proper balance between work and study if you want to graduate with good results. Here are a couple of tips you can use to maintain a proper balance as a working student.

  • Be in Control of Your Time. As a working student, you are your own boss. You will need to take up the responsibility of choosing whether you want to work or go home and study. Since both, study and work are important and time is of the essence, you will need to be in complete control of your time.
  • When Balance is Not Possible. Remember that balancing work and study is tough, and there are times that things might not pan out as you planned. When that happens, learn to rotate your time so that you are able to live life and not forget about living because you have to work and pay for your education.
