Have you considered a student job as a substitute?

Despite state education support, most students look for a part-time job, as an additional source of income, besides their study. Everyday life as a student can be busy and it can be difficult to find a job that works well with the education. Here many people forget the opportunity to get a job as a substitute.

What does the job require as a substitute?

If you come to work as a substitute, you work as a replacement for a position that is actually occupied by another, but where the person cannot perform the task at the moment.

It depends on the individual industry and position what qualifications are required of you as a duplicate. Some professions require skilled labor, where within other professions one can be employed as an unskilled person if one has competencies that enable one to perform the tasks.

One cannot always know what positions one is offered, therefore it may be beneficial to be open minded to new challenges and environments. In addition, it benefits if you as a person are outgoing, as you will be thrown into several jobs and will thus be presented to many different teams.

The benefits of such a position

One of the reasons why it may be beneficial for students to be employed as a substitute is that it may be calling for work. This means that as an employee you are called, for example during illness in the company, and must step in at short notice if possible.

You decide for yourself which options you would like to thank and thus have a very flexible working week, where you yourself control when and how much you want to work.

The various substitutes also include a wealth of varied tasks. This can be a good break for the perhaps slightly more monotonous everyday life on the school bench.

In jobs as a substitute

There is a wide variety of substitutes in between, and you can thus be thrown into many different tasks.

The cancellation can be both short-term and long-lasting and take place at many different times of the day.

With a temporary job , one has great self- reliance in relation to working hours and workplace. Flexibility is thus a keyword in connection with temporary employment.

With temporary work positions, a good salary is often included, and so you do not have to work as many hours as you might need elsewhere to get something into the bank book.

Thereby there is also room to keep focus on one's education while at the same time being able to handle a job.

What do you get along with?

After working as a substitute for a period, you will probably have experience in a multitude of different industries and expanded your personal qualities. This will make you more attractive to future jobs.

Performing many temporary jobs puts one in touch with a palette of different companies and people. Thus, you have ample opportunity to expand your network. If one does his work satisfactorily, one can come out on the other side with the foot inside the door at top companies.

Over time, one can also be lucky to be offered a substitute a place that is study relevant.

How do I find a temporary job?

Around Denmark, various temporary employment agencies are working to establish links between companies and unemployed. They work with a number of companies that contact the company when they lack a substitute.

Then the agency dives into their portfolio to find the right person for the job.

If you are employed as a substitute, your name will be among them, and thus it may be you who they call. If you do not have the opportunity to work on that day or period, you are free to refuse the offer.

It can therefore be the perfect solution for those who are studying, but still want a larger amount of available money.
