It’s the Thursday “ask the readers” question. A reader writes:
I’m attending grad school in the fall to study in a very niche yet exciting and fast-growing industry (yay!). Since I’m older than 26 but still need health insurance and to pay rent, I’m going to be looking for either a part-time job with health benefits or a full-time job with flexible hours and health benefits. The obvious choices to me are Starbucks, retail, etc. but a friend of mine recently she said she worked at a country club when she went to grad school, which was great because it paid well and had weekend and evening hours.
I was wondering if your readers had any experience with/advice about jobs that provided them with flexibility and health insurance while attending school full time. (I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’d be a great fit for the food/bar industry, just because I have dietary restrictions and am not much of a drinker and would probably have difficulty speaking knowledgeably about food or drink I don’t consume myself!)
Readers, please share your ideas in the comment section.
