      I think nowadays it is very necessary and important for college students to have a part time job. I worked for Vector Marketing for 3 years while in college. It helped me pay for college expenses and was flexible with my hours. I preferred working there over a fast food restaurant (I used to work at a fast food restaurant when I was in high school so I know it's not the greatest place to work).
