Work or Study?

Hey, guys! I just wanna know something about job-hunting in different countries. When you are a senior in university, do you still need to attend classes or you have a planty of time to find your job? Does your university offer some chances or it will hold some meetings to help you find jobs?

Comandante ,you may feel regret your decision if you chose to study too, but we can't go back to the time to change our decision, and I think that's the best and worst part of our life.

I wish I could work and study at the same time, but, unfortunately, I do not enough time for doing so.

It is hard to work and study at the same time. After I finished the Master degree, I had to choose between Ph.D study and a job. I chose to have a job and sometimes, I feel I regret this descision.

Yes,I agree with you, Julia. I want to do some similar thing too, because now I feel lost in my future. I don't know what I should do or what I can or have interest to do.

In my university you can do your own schedule. So, it is possible to put your lessons the way you want to. I will not have any classes in my last semester if I will have luck and pass every exam. I "only" have to write my final thesis.

That`s why I will be able to go for a job hunt.

My university also offers a unit/module which is called "work experience". You do internships and attend classes which offer you a glimpse at different jobs.

These units are good and bad at the same time. The units for sure give you a main idea about what you could do in the future, and they give you an introduction to the topic, but in the worst case you will not know what you want to do in the future because those courses are so basic, that you cannot make a decision.

The internships can be cool but they don`t have to be. You can learn a lot and you can learn almost nothing. It depends on where you apply and what luck you`ll have.

But all in all, I am very happy that they give us that glimpse, it makes it easier to decide about your future.
