But if you are willing to work after school and on the weekends, right now may be the perfect time for you to start looking for that job. Before you start your job search, you may need to look at some fac- tors. First of all you must be very sure that working will not affect your grades and that you can have a schedule that will allow you time to keep up your school activities. That extra money is always nice but sav- ing for college won't do you much good if you are failing all your classes. You also need to think about transportation and how far you will be able to travel for work. Make sure you have a reliable way to work each day. After all, your employer will be counting on you. After you've made the commit- ment to find a job, the Roncaverte Job Service may be able to help you in your search. Part-time jobs are 1988, and June 30, 1989.
