Many are the students who leave each year in search of a job that allows
them to earn money and study at the same time. This is important for financing
their studies and covering certain daily expenses. But in reality, it is
sometimes difficult for these young people to find a job that suits them in
every way. How to go about finding a good student job? Here are some tips that
will be useful if you are a student and are looking for the ideal job.
The CV is a central part of your application that you will send to many
companies. It must therefore be very neat. Make sure your content is clear and
If you already have experience in the field in which you are going to
apply, do not hesitate to mention it on your student resume. A recruiter could favor the student who is already knowledgeable and to
whom he will not have to learn the basics of the trade. However, if you are
looking for a student job without experience, be aware that motivation is also
a criterion taken into account by recruiters. Even if you do not have
professional experience, it is imperative to consider that this can weigh in
the balance. If you are not familiar with it, ask a third person who knows the
layout to give an attractive form to your CV. The objective here is to catch
the eye of the recruiter in order to increase your chances of being called
Candidates for student jobs often make the mistake of sending the same
cover letter to all the companies to which they apply. Some even send a letter
taken from the Internet and quickly modified. Know right away that it is
noticeable at first glance. So take the time to personalize your letters,
depending on the type of company and the mission.
In terms of the reasons, you cite in your letter, be honest because
companies know that most students do not take a job alongside their studies for
fun. Without expressly saying that you come just for the salary, explain for
example that it is to finance your studies.
To apply for a student job, nothing better than going to meet companies.
Indeed, for some companies, not all, the emails received by recruiters are
skimmed over or land in the spam category. It is better to deliver your
application file by hand. This will echo your motivation and your involvement
in the job. You can also take advantage of events during which companies
identify talent and recruit.
The interim option allows you to save considerable time. If you have
your first meeting in an agency, it is important to establish with an agent
during this meeting, your availability, and your job desires. Once you are part
of the agency's database, you can estimate that you have half won the mission.
You will then just have to wait for someone to call you for a specific mission
that you are not obliged to accept, of course.
