Part-time jobs are the best ways to manage daily expenses abroad as they are the only sources of additional income. Here, I’d like to talk about a part-time job that I’ve done. Initially, I got the opportunity to pursue my master’s from the University of Melbourne, Australia, through a scholarship. But with the Australian lifestyle being extraordinary, the scholarship funds were not enough to manage my life there. It became complicated, so I sought a suitable part-time job. One of my seniors noticed my flair for writing, so he suggested that I opt for a part-time content writing or editing job. After some struggle, I finally managed to get a part-time job as a content writer for a travel company. As my part-time job as a writer can be done at my comfort, I used to perform it in my room, while other students who were involved with part-time jobs had to hasten from pillar to post. I was fortunate enough to work as a content writer at my flexibility and convenience, the company made regular payments. To conclude, I learnt a lot as a part-time writer. Besides, it was the only monetary support during my difficult times.
