Becoming independent is always connected with job-seeking. A lot of students start their working career with temple jobs, which are not related with their profession. First job helps students to define their further work activity and give them unvalued first experience. Maybe, it can seem complicated to convince employer that you are the person he/she needs, when you haven’t enough experience, can’t fill full-time position and don’t possess the diploma.
