How to Balance a Job and School

Posted on: July 2, 2012

Here’s the challenge:  Your job takes up your time. You need your time to go to school (to get a better job). But to pay for school you need your job. There is a way to do it. And these tips will help!

  1. Be determined. First, decide that you will succeed. Remember that thousands have done it before you. If they can do it, you can.
  2. Be organized. Keep all your school stuff in a folder or bag, and keep it together. And mark a calendar with upcoming dates for exams, homework due dates and schedules.
  3. Use time wisely. Make sure you use your downtime for studying and getting things done before you “play” or watch TV.
  4. Make priorities. You’re only human, and you won’t always get everything done. So do the most important things first and make a plan for finishing the rest.
  5. Be good to you. Don’t stress out or make yourself unhappy. Just remember you’re working toward something better.

You have what it takes to succeed. With a little work you’ll get there!
