You should carefully consider the time you'll spend commuting. It'll help you narrow your choices and determine your priorities.
Your job search will be limited to a specific area that's easily accessible to you. To help you determine how far you're willing to travel, ask yourself the following questions:
1. How much time will I spend commuting?
Calculate the travel time PLUS the number of times you'll need to make the trip in a week. The higher the number, the more likely it is that work will get in the way of your school work. Also, you have to consider your travel costs.
2. Will my travel time be affected by when I start and finish work?
The bus schedule changes a lot based on the time and day of the week. You also need to consider traffic if you're planning on getting a ride or driving to work.
