When you work in a part time job, it means your prime time is deployed in something else, either a full time job, at studies or at home-making. Part time job does not only fetch you the extra cash you need, but also brings along with it valuable experience that can enhance your worth.
A part time job may not be to do with of your core skills and experience, but if it does, it is an added advantage for you. If it doesn’t, it is all the more beneficial for you to gain experience, because, if the part time job were not to be there, you may not perhaps get exposed to those experiences.
Let us assume, for example, that your full time job confines you to a technical work without need for interpersonal dealings but your part time job is to do with lots of interaction with people, (say, a sales job). Remember that for any staff to grow to become a manager one day, the top most skill needed is to manage people. In a part time sales job, you will get exposed to dealing with a variety of people with varying temperaments, moods and tastes. A sales job develops in you patience, a pleasant demeanor in interpersonal dealings and a capacity to convince people through your talking skills. Thus, without effort, you are acquiring skills that will be valuable to you for your future growth, through this part time job.
No job is exclusively earmarked for dull heads. Every job has its nuance and there are always knacks of doing things better, faster and smarter in any job. In a part time job, you will get exposed to opportunities to develop those knacks and skills, if only you are smart enough to learn them. These skills may not have anything to do with your full time job today, but no skill developed inside you goes a waste. At the right time at the most opportune moment, the skill acquired by you in your part time job will come handy and a blessing.
Employers always love to recruit people who are willing to work hard and long. Working in a part time job means you you have the quality of hard work and you are not the type who whiles away free time in some unproductive way. This could be a quality that impresses a future employer who may be willing to offer a good salary to employ you, leading to a situation where working in part time to earn extra money may become a thing of the past.
