You gain experience which is the best way of learning.
2. Practical aspects of life.
You might not understand the value of money till the time your parents are funding. But the day you step out to earn yourself, you realize the struggle. If you have taken up a job during your college,nobody knows the struggle better than you. Firstly, the jobs that you get at that time are very petty and the salary that you get cannot be taken into consideration. Secondly, you get to know the hardships and the real struggle of life. You might be thinking of a handsome salary but that is the time when you get to know that even a millionaire once started with a penny.
3. Extra pocket money.

Even before you start your job you start thinking about the salary and the things you’d buy with that. You think of gifting stuff to your mom or may be a pizza party with friends. That feeling of extra money is just priceless. Even 1000 bucks can make a difference when you are in college.
