Career Services helps students learn to focus

Along with working part time at B&'D Burgers, Carr belongs to AASU's theater troupe, the Masquers, and also auditions around town.

Carr said she was able to have such a flexible schedule at her job because she let her managers know she was someone they could trust by building credibility.

"The easiest jobs to balance are getting a campus job, because they know your schedule and have to follow it, and waiting tables," she said. "It's already understood that you're a student, and they have no choice but to work around your school schedule."

Wilson said Career Services also helps with getting on-campus jobs and work-studies. They can also advise students on how to balance their schedules and focus on priorities.

Being focused on school and work leads Carr to make her social life less of a priority.

"I don't go out as much as I would like," she said. "Sometimes I have to sacrifice having fun."
