REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES According to Michelle Bell-In educational institutions, success is measured by academic performance, or how well a student meets standards set out by local government and the institution itself. As career competition grows ever fiercer in the working world, the importance of students doing well in school has caught the attention of parents, legislators and government education departments alike. Most likely, every student exceeds their limitations nowadays. They manage time in working, education, and social life.
For what reason that is, well, they do this in order to be able to pay up for education expenses. Some others just do this to earn a little extra spending money, for them to be able to buy something which they want to avail without them begging their parents for it. Basically, part time work is their only choice to get that money they need if they do not have student loans offered at their university. Some students need to pay up for rent, tuition, and etc. Working part time gives them the money and the thought of realizing how important it is.
They are also provided with the thought of handling their responsibilities very well if they work part time during college days. Indeed, working while studying can be tough to handle. It forces you to manage your time and your responsibilities. Sometimes, it makes you choose between the two. Students today tend to sacrifice their time for social life to earn some extra spending cash. They end up being way too busy to have a social life. They don’t even have enough time to sleep which affects their daily performance at school. They organize these responsibilities for a few income or profit. They do all of that for money.
