Student Job Search Gearing Up for Summer Season

Student Job Search Gearing Up for Summer Season

Student Job Search is currently gearing up for the summer period. Traditionally summer is Student Job Search’s busiest time of year with thousands of students out looking for a job.

“With the days slowly getting longer and the work for summer rolling in, there is no better time for students to enrol and sort out their job for summer,” said Conor Roberts, chair of Student Job Search.

“Last summer students earned a record $53million through jobs obtained by Student Job Search and we are hoping to top that this season. I'd encourage any student who will be looking for a job over the summer to contact our offices.”

“The team at SJS is working really hard to find work for the thousands of students who will be looking to save some money over the warmer months after their University or Polytechnic courses finish.”

“This year we have made it even easier to get a job with SJS. Students can now log onto, enrol with us and search for a job online.”

“The average rate of pay is now $12.90 and we are attracting more higher paying jobs for students.”

“In addition to the traditional jobs we attract, Student Job Search is also attracting a lot of skilled and course-related work, so people can get ahead in their field of study. That work could give students the edge they need when they finish studying.”

“Also for employers, there has never been a better time to hire a student for skilled or semi-skilled work. I would encourage anyone looking to employ someone to consider hiring a student,” Mr Roberts concluded.
