Title: Education and Employment: Factors in the Student Experience
Author(s): Heaton, Emily
Subject(s): employment working student priorities money job
Abstract: For some students, it seems that employment while in school greatly affects performance in school work, for others, it poses either no threat or can even be seen as a stress reliever. Student employment occurs for many different reasons and takes place in many different arenas; some student work on campus, others off. Students mainly choose employment that will benefit them in some way other than monetarily; many students choose to work in areas related to a potential career field. Some employed students begin to see work as a priority, especially when they reach higher-level positions. Students may spend more time at work than any arena other than the classroom itself. These students may begin to feel a level of responsibility to work that is equal to or possibly even greater than school.
