Jobs for Students Category Definitions
These are generally 4 to 20 hours week to week & month to month ongoing jobs with an employer that pay students on a per hour basis. Part time jobs are a great way for students to make some extra money. Part time jobs also allow a student to start building a network and more importantly a resume of ongoing successes. Whether a student works as a bus boy, as a cook at McDonalds or becomes a part time supervisor of adults for a trucking company, future employers will always favor students with real world experience. Employers also take less risk when they hire a student that is known to have already been trained in basic customer skillsets.
These are generally jobs that pay you on a per hour basis over the coming summer. Jobs in this category, generally speaking, start when the local public-school systems end the school year (usually mid to late June) though employers may need to train you for one or two weeks before the “summer” begins. A textbook example of such a job on Hire a Student would be a summer camp counselor. More sophisticated employers hire students over the summer to cover for their customary full-time employees who, generally speaking, take their vacations over the summer.
Summer internships, generally speaking, are primarily for college students working full-time (40 hours per week) for an employer (either paid or unpaid) that specializes in their respective concentration at their college or university. For example, a college student majoring in accounting would seek a paid internship at a small local or multi-thousand person international accounting firm. Summer internships may also be for small organizations with limited budgets to pay interns like a political campaign. Whether paid or unpaid, internships allow students to gain valuable real-world experience in their respective field of study. Successful internships are usually a major competitive advantage for the student when they are about to graduate college and seek that very first “real job.”
School year internships are, generally speaking, quite similar to summer internships except that school year internships are not full time. School year internships may require the student to work 8 – 20 hours per week over the entire school year. The benefits of an internship during the school year otherwise are exactly the same. We will say it 100 times. Internships in a specific field of expertise have always been highly regarded by future employers.
Freelance jobs are generally positions that allow the student to work from home. Freelance should not be confused with telecommuting. Any telecommuting position on Hire a Student is generally a part time job that is performed from home. Freelance jobs would be tasks done either at the employer or at home but are paid upon completion of a deliverable. A good example of a freelance position would be painting a picture to be shown in a lobby or building a website. Generally speaking, we discourage college and high school students from accepting freelance jobs. However, there are always exceptions to the rule. That being said we can assure you we prohibit “get rich quick” schemes disguised as freelance positions on www.hireastudent.com.
Temporary jobs are just as they sound…jobs for a temporary period of time. A temporary job may be 40 hours per week for one week or maybe up to three months. The idea is the job is only for a fixed period of time. In the “real world” a textbook temporary job would be perhaps to cover for an employee that is on vacation for one week or to cover for a person out for 3 months on maternity leave. We do not expect many “temporary” jobs will be posted for students on www.hireastudent.net. However, if there are temporary positions close to home the employer will generally, but not all the time, but generally pay at a higher rate per hour because it is important the employer fill the vacancy or need. Temporary jobs are a great way to “show your stuff” and reveal to the employer your value as an employee. Doing a great job as a temporary employee can lead to additional work after the term of the temporary job ends.
