Importance of job

boxturtleswagboxturtleswag Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
I hold two jobs as a lifeguard. One is at a summer-only pool and the other is year-round at an indoor pool. I worked throughout the entire school year last year and it was manageable. However, this year I am taking four AP classes and picked for a leadership position in an activity that requires a large time commitment for the first part of the school year. Also I will be participating in and practicing for a musical group that will take even more time. Should I keep this job?

    See if you can decrease your hours to 5-6.
    If not, prioritize school work.

    Colleges care about your GPA and SAT. That job will be there for you to get back to but you will not get those leadership and musical group chances as easily. Ditch the job if you can financially...or tell them to call you when they need someone to fill in.
