    Companies don't care if you worked 15 hours at kfc and 15 at mcdonalds a week while studying.

    They have a decent job market (debatable - fite me) to reward them if they focus solely on med tho...

    Re: decent uni part time jobs

    Med students generally work less part-time jobs because you don't need to and it adds almost 0 value to your career compared to say b.comm or law or engineering. I know plenty of people in my cohort who work but it is definitely not easy to do anything more than 10 hours a week consistently unless you want to just pass and get by.

    Re: decent uni part time jobs

    I would be interested to hear of med students part time work during uni. I too have heard that Med students don't need the work, and the ones that do, do things like tutoring.

    I have heard of universities like Cambridge having a policy where they don't allow their students to work during uni. Not sure if this is true or not.

    i believe med students do high school tutoring since they're usually the ones with high atars but i am against tutoring other students (unless it's tutoring for free but i will not have the time to do that)

    for an actual part time job, i think they do uni tutoring (usually second-third yr) and have clinical practice as part of their degree

    Depends on the job but IMO it says you're able to balance work/studies, can handle responsibility/commitments, etc... and then depending on the job you did, you may be able to demonstrate other traits/skills whether it be customer service, coaching staff, managing aspects of a process, conflict resolution, budgeting/forecasting, supervision/review, etc...

    Past performance is often a good indicator of future performance (in this case at least).

    Definitely keep an eye out on your uni's internal careers/student jobs webpage. Uni pay is greeeeaaaaattttt and they love hiring student casuals, plus they're super accomodating towards your studies.

There are thousands of different tasks for any kind of skills and experience, so you may choose something easier first, and then get a good portfolio to attract more clients. And It seems popular nowadays among students due to the stress caused by the amount of the tasks, to ask for some help for writings. The requests, for instance, to buy history papers online appear more and more often. So if you've got proficient writing skills, there are a lot of opportunities to get deeper understanding in some subjects, help somebody with an essay and improve your writing skills and ability to work with different content.
    As for me, freelancing is much better than any kind of part time job, like bartender or barista or any other physical work.
    why thank you adbot, we'll be sure to not listen to you.
