My part time job requires me to work in a small supermarket and serve customers. I'm usually stood behind the till and sometimes it gets very tedious. The long hours just standing on my feet are not fun. I wanted to share some tips with you and give some advice on how to make it seem less mundane.
- Remember to Treat Yourself
When pay day comes, remember to get yourself a little something. A bit of retail therapy always cheers me up and reminds you that if you didn't have a job, you wouldn't be able to treat yourself.
- Think of the Big Picture
Why are you working? It could be to save up for something special (in my case, university) or to get you one step closer to your ideal job. Working is important and all the experience you gain is really useful.
- It Motivates You
Sometimes when I'm at work, I get really bored especially when there's nothing to do. Then I think about what it'd be like to do this same job for the next fourty years - It's not a pretty thought. This motivates me to do well in my studies so that I can have a better job in the future.
- Improves your Character
At work, I am always in view of the public! Most customers are lovely and kind, although you do get a few rude ones. I think this really helps you develop your people skills and definitely improves your confidence as you are forced to speak to strangers.
- You'd Rather be Bored and Earning Money for it
I know part time jobs aren't very exciting, but you'd probably end up getting bored at home (I do)! At least you're getting paid for being bored. Just think of the money!
