Often times, students have to find part time work to make ends meet. However, many students immediately search for minimum wage jobs because they ‘don’t feel qualified’ for working at a company or business in their field.
However, many businesses are interested in hiring students for part-time work or soft starts. From a financial perspective, businesses can save a lot of money and time by gradually working with potential full time hires rather than hiring a full-time, salaried employee only to realize they aren’t good fit.
Reach out to companies in your field and pitch them for a soft start. Even if it’s remote work or 2 days in the office per week, you can gain some valuable experience and expand your network by doing so.
