Does Job Experience Look Good on College Applications?
Answered

I am currently interested in getting a summer job, but I have many activities going on. I would need to make some sacrifices to be able to work. If I got job experience, would that look appealing or at the very least decent on college applications?

I would highly recommand getting that summer job if you really think it is worth doing the sacrifices. CollegeVine descibe an ''hourly paid work at local business'' as Tier 3c: Strong. As such I would say yes it looks great on an application and I suppose even mrore if you manage to get a summer job that's related to the field you want to study.

Hope that helped !
