Job In Grad School or Nah? - Follow Me Through Grad School Episode 106
A question many grad students mull over is "Should I get a job or not?" Grad school is expensive and resources are limited for many students. What should I do? Watch this episode to see what I decided to do.
For graduate students balancing school and finances can be particularly difficult. On one hand, a graduate school degree gives student’s access to higher paying jobs, but on the other hand, it comes with a hefty price tag. Additionally, unexpected costs, such as school fees, supplies, and required travel, can drastically affect one’s budget. Having good financial habits and knowing what resources are available can save graduate students a lot of money and grief in the long run.
In this week's vlog I go over my grad school budget and contemplate if I should get a job while obtaining my degree?
Some highlights include:
- Be wary of your budget
- Be cognizant of your spending
- Talk to financial aid advisor and learn about what resources are available to help you on your grad school journey
- Research for scholarships that you may qualify for
