Working a Part Time Job at School

By Ku Reum Cub Reporter, Sophomore of Japanese

   While attending school, working a part time job is not easy. It takes a lot of time to work a part time job, especially if it is far away from school. However, if you work a part time job at your school, you can do it efficiently. The Student Worker system is a way to work at school for a set hourly wage. Enrolled students in the eighth or lower income quintile calculated by the Korea Scholarship Foundation can apply. Also, only those who have applied for the National Student Worker Scholarship from the Korea Scholarship Foundation can file an application. Student Workers are divided into “National Student Worker” and “School Student Worker” groups. National Student Workers are managed by the Korea Scholarship Foundation, and applications can be made on the website of the Korea Scholarship Foundation. A typical workplace is a campus department office, where they can work up to 20 hours a week. On the other hand, School Student Workers are managed by the college, and applications can be made on the website of the HBNU Academic Affairs Information System. An administrative office is a representative workplace. Students can work up to 13 hours a week. We can learn more about student workers through these interviews.

 

Kim Do-won, Senior, National Student Worker of Department Office

Q. What kind of work do you do in the department office?

   I assist the teaching assistants with administrative work in the department office. Also, I deal with student complaints and conduct classroom inspections.

Q. Do you have any memorable episodes while working?

   I remember the graduation ceremonies held every semester. I help the teaching assistants prepare for the graduation ceremony. I work on this event every semester, but it is only once for the graduates, so I try to work even harder for them. On the day of the graduation ceremony, it is always meaningful to see the joyful graduates and to say congratulations.

Q. Please tell us the advantages and disadvantages of working in your workplace.

There are many advantages to working in the department office. First, you can learn about the announcements of the department before other students. Second, you can experience the life of an office worker indirectly. Because the teaching assistants and professors work as professionals, I can learn the system of office work. It will have been a good experience when I take a job.

   However, some complaints make me tired. Some people make prank calls. As a student worker, it is hard for me to deal sternly with such people.

 

 

Kim Hye-seong, Junior, School Student Worker of Field Placement Support Center

Q. How did you find out about becoming a school student worker?

   When I met friends who worked at the school, I thought they were cool because they were helping the teaching assistants and working. During the summer vacation of my first year, I worked in the department where my friend was also working because they were short of hands. While working as a student worker, I thought it would help me to experience life in an office and build up Excel skills. Therefore, I applied to be a student worker since I thought it would be helpful in the future.

Q. What kind of work do you do in the field placement support center?

   In the office, I do academic work and help the teaching assistants. I provide announcements to students who take field placement courses every semester. Besides, I am doing the overall field placement work, such as organizing the required documents for student’s field placements. I also work in Excel to make sure the field placement students are paid their support money.

Q. Please explain the advantages and disadvantages of working in your workplace.

   Being a student worker is a good opportunity to learn manners that are helpful in a social life, such as overall work etiquette or answering the phone. When work overlaps with the examination period, I may be very busy. However, the student’s rude calls make me tired. I often get offended by insolent calls from students.

 

Hong U-rim, Sophomore, Student Worker of School Newspaper

Q. How did you find out about being a school student worker?

   Before entering college, my goal was “to have the best college life.” I was interested in this job after seeing a notice recruiting cub reporters for the school newspaper during the freshmen orientation. I was not confident in my writing, but I applied for the “Culture Department,” which was very interesting.

Q. What kind of work do you do in the field placement support center?

   The main job of a school newspaper is writing articles. We publish newspapers every month except February and July, through item meetings, a news gathering period, and an editing period.

Q. Please talk about the advantages and disadvantages of working in your workplace.

   The advantage is that you can know the school news first, as well as learning about general news stories. Also, as I write frequently, my writing skills have improved. Furthermore, there are many good opportunities to meet various people and hear their thoughts through news gathering. Last year, I had a good opportunity to talk to the mayor of Daejeon along with other university reporters. Nevertheless, there was a time when I had a hard time because of school tasks and newspaper work.

 

According to these interviews, working at school is helpful to your social life and an opportunity to indirectly experience professional office work. Moreover, working as a school student worker can help you have a wider vision for the future. If you qualify, you should apply to be a student worker!
