University student writing Blackfoot words on the blackboard
Look for Work, Explore Education

“I want to work part-time while going to school. Do you have any advice?”


Coby is studying to become a teacher at a university.

She discusses interacting within the community and working part-time while studying.

Whether you’re going back to school or continuing your education, you’re making an investment that will pay for itself in many ways.

You’ll build your skills, expand your career opportunities and maybe even increase your income. A part–time option offers you the best of both worlds—you can keep earning while you pursue your career goals.

Balancing work with school or training can be a challenge, but it can also lead you in positive new directions.
