  1. I want to find part time for making some money for my living cost at university life and more get experience also.

  2. I want to job type part time because i can spend time of study at university and english or chinese that i have to study both language ….

  3. Are you a Cambodian university student who wants to find some part time job in order to gain some job experience as well as making some money during your study to pay for your living cost? If so you are coming to the right place, let me talking something about this.Of course, being a university is so fun and very enjoyable while you are preparing yourself to get a good job or to run any business in a very short future after you graduate your course. But if you find some part time job to do in this time, you will get more job experience as well as study more about some working situation that you cannot learn just in school. Although for some student whose family doesn’t have enough money for them to play for their university cost, then working part time can help them to make some money that can pay for their school fee. So working part time during your university life can be very useful while you only spend from 3 hours or even a half day every day.

    However, during this time, I don’t recommend you go to work for full time because you will have less time for your study and then you will be sorry one day. The best ways to find a part time job is to search on some Cambodian job website which you will find a lot of job listings that may interested you.
