Do you think it's a good idea for teenagers to have an after-school job? Write a composition giving reasons for and / or against working after school.
It has become very popular among teenagers to have an after-school job. Many young boys and girls go in their afternoons to their part time job. Some people entourage this while others object.
On the one hand, having a job is a great way to gain responsibility and people skills. At work, teenagers learn how to give service efficiently, how to communicate with customers and how to manage under stress. Those skills will be very helpful to them in their future. In addition, they start managing their budget, and since it is their hard-earned money, they become aware of the importance of smart shopping and more.
On the other hand, teenagers, especially students, have other, more important areas in which they should invest time and effort. In high school and college, the lessons become harder, there are many exams and projects, and having high academic scores has a great impact on the students' future. Not only is the academic field very demanding, teenagers also have social lives. At their age, they feel the need to fit in and be popular, hence they tend not to miss social events and meetings. Managing both areas is tough as it is. A Job takes many hours a week. At some time or another, it will be on the expanses of something else.
In conclusion, there are many benefits to having an after-school job. I, however, think that teenagers have already enough on their plates. There will be plenty of time for work later in life…
