Just over a year ago, I was in my junior year of college and was an assistant manager at a pretty large local electronic repair shop. Pay was okay but got almost 40 hours a week. I ended up switching to an internship where I was limited to a very low amount of hours per week and an okay pay. I will say that first thing I did was figured out the things that I was okay with sacrificing and not having anymore (Eating out vs cooking, Walking more to places than driver (lived in downtown was better that way anyways), and finally for extra money I would free lance, not only did that earn some extra cash but also gave me a way to build my portfolio. It was for sure a tough situation to be in but a year of sacrificing led me into a job that I really enjoy. I think with some planning you can do it.
