Imagine that you are doing a project on part-time job preferences among teenagers in Zetland. You have found some data on the subject – the results of the opinion polls (see the bar chart below).
Comment on the data in the bar chart and give your opinion on the subject of the project.
The opinion poll question:
Which of the following part-time jobs do you find most appealing as a teenager?
- Food delivery driver – 35%
- Online survey taker – 30%
- Pet sitter – 15%
- Package sorter – 14%
- Barista – 6%
Write 200-250 words.
Use the following plan:
– make an opening statement on the subject of the project;
– select and report 2–3 facts;
– make 1–2 comparisons where relevant and give your comments;
– outline a problem that can arise with teen employment and suggest a way of solving it;
– conclude by giving and explaining your opinion on the importance of part-time jobs for teenagers.
A part-time job can have an adverse effect on teenagers' academic study (academic performance).
Students have (experience) difficulty in balancing (juggling) their part-time work and study.
Working teenagers may come to school tired, have little time to see their teachers after school for special help, and avoid extracurricular activities, hence missed opportunities.
It is important to find a flexible job or a job in an easily accessible area.
It is advisable that teenagers learn about time management, schedule beforehand and take note of their deadlines (key dates) so as not to fall behind.
Prioritize and be realistic, since time is a limited resource.
Avoid time wasting. Work out the best routine.
A teenager tries to juggle many other activities while doing a part-time job, which may be a cause of health problems.
Take a break if things get too stressful.
Eat right and get enough sleep to minimize negative effects.
