I frequently mention my jobs in my posts. For many students, having a job throughout college is quintessential, and for others, an absolute must. I relate to the latter description. I am currently juggling two jobs---those with jobs generally hold one or two. I once held three, but I put a temporary hold to one to focus on my studies.
For those interested in having a job on or around campus, I highly suggest you apply for one before or right at the beginning of the fall semester. After three weeks or so, the work-study jobs are filled up (you can qualify for work-study jobs by selecting the option on your FAFSA). For those without vehicles, it is easiest to get a job on campus. Other non-academic employers incude Dunkin', the Mill, and Sodexo. There are also jobs that offer carpooling from campus (such as my security job).
You can also find jobs off-campus in downtown Northfield. There are a couple dozen businesses that may offer jobs. The walk to downtown is about twenty minutes.
It may be tough juggling a job with your studies. You'll also have to juggling those two with your social life. If your grades begin falling, think about temporary halting your job. Don't quit---just ask for some time off until your prove your grades. The money may be nice, but your grades come before your job.
