All about earning
Thinking about a part-time job? We'll help you weigh up your options.
It’s a tricky question: should you get a part-time job and build up some work experience, or focus on your schoolwork so you have the best chance of acing your grades?
Employers and universities say that they actively look for work experience in applications, so a part-time job can look really positive on your CV.
But every teenager is different. It's important to balance the benefits of a job with making sure you have plenty of time for homework, meeting up with friends and chilling out.
