These people should set in mind what ever job we do, it is give a job experience to us as an early exercise to face a real job industry.It also can e n h a n c e our level of confident in doing a job under the pressures and when facing a problem from customer.It is better to do a simple job than are unemployed people. From the money we get in doing a simple job, it can sustenance our life a little bit.
