Student jobs are in some European countries like Spain very rare, in the UK not. Also in Germany you can always find side jobs as a waiter or in a warehouse. When you study near to the coast or in a touristic area, you normally can easy find a summer job. Shops, restaurants and bars begin searching for seasonal staff as early as March. You may not have finished uni quite yet but distributing your CV (as long as it clearly notes your availability) before sixth form leavers can give you a massive advantage. Guy Townsin, careers manager at Portsmouth University says: “Advertised seasonal jobs will be few and far between, so use your networks to seek out unadvertised opportunities and use your university careers service to help tailor a CV for seasonal work.”

The problem is what people normally percieve learning to be and the misconception around how human beings actually learn.

But government figures show that only only around half (53%) of those who graduated within the past five years are in such jobs.
