Most popular Student Jobs

Posted by | August 8, 2011 | Job

In 2010 there has been a very big European wide study about what jobs are the most popular among students. So these results do not only represent Hungary but Europe though Hungary was also represented in the study. So according to the study the most popular student jobs in Europe are the following:

  1. Office job (assistance, reception)
  2. Catering / Gastronomy
  3. Research / graduate assistant at the university
  4. Private lessons for other students
  5. Retail sales
  6. Production
  7. Promotion work
  8. Programming
  9. Self Employment
  10. Accounting jobs

I think that in Hungary many students work in the catering industry such as in restaurants, bars and so on. Also promotion work seems to be quite popular.

However, these jobs are fine as long as they are temporary. More and more students are now pushing their studies toward master’s degrees in order to get a well-paid job at the end. Even current employees are registering for online courses, like Masters in Organizational Leadership, in order to obtain a promotion in their own company.

If anyone knows any Hungarian study covering the same topic, that would be absolutely great. Please leave a comment if you know a resource.
