Job for international students
Most students like to supplement their student grant with a student job.
The competition for jobs is so tough that many students feel their best chance is to bolster their CV with a student job. A student job does not always have to be within a very specific area which perfectly matches the field of study, because many employers value the tasks and responsibilities undertaken by the new graduate while working in a student job more than the name and prestige of the former workplace. The fact that the student knows what it means to work ‘in the real world’ counts a lot for future employers.
Work experience is decisive
The industrial policy consultant from the Danish Chamber of Commerce agrees that employers favour prospective employees who have obtained work experience while studying.
Experience shows that four out of five study-relevant student jobs are found through networking.
