Part-time jobs are often held by current college students so that they can avoid racking up insurmountable levels of student debt. In our most recent State of College Hiring Report we discovered that over 80% of college students work part-time while in school. These jobs include everything from being a barista at Starbucks or a retail assistant at Gap to working as contract web developer or research assistant in a lab. Our study also showed that students and recent grads with professional work experience of any kind have a much better chance of getting hired full-time in a professional entry-level job after college.
