Student who used to plan their schedules so that they have afternoon classes or classes during particular days of the week, have hard time coping up with job environments that demand full time working for five days a week. One needs to wake up early and ensure that they arrive to work by 8 a.m. in college, there is a lot of free time and vocation time especially when students break for summer or winter.
