The benefits of a work student with machine learning experience

By EuFlex Technificent

You probably landed on this page because you are looking for a new employee or a work student to apply machine learning within your organization. First of all, let’s start with what exactly machine learning entails.

What is machine learning

Machine learning is a form of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that focuses on building systems that can learn from processed data or use data to perform better. Artificial Intelligence is a term for systems that mimic human intelligence. (source: Oracle)

Machine learning has become a popular term; it is used everywhere these days. The technology is developing rapidly, but we are only just beginning to understand the possibilities it has to offer. To get a better overview of the possibilities within your organization, a student can help.

What can a machine learning student help with?

First of all, it is important to know what a work student is. Actually, a work student is nothing more than a student who performs work within a company, usually in the form of a side job. Would you like to read more about what a work student is? Then read this blog!

A work student with machine learning skills can of course help solve problems that involve machine learning. TU/e works mainly with CBL (Challenged Based Learning), which means that many assignments and courses are directly carried out in practice. The student will therefore already have performed a machine learning project before. Just keep in mind that it is a student, so years of experience at a large company will unfortunately not be the case. But this does not take away that a work student can contribute a lot within the organization.

A work student also provides a new innovative perspective on the organization. Students are aware of the latest techniques, tools and research in the field. They can share and apply this knowledge immediately! Since they are not limited by the existing culture and processes within the organization, they quickly see what can be done more efficiently.

In addition, students who are looking for a study-related job generally have a driven personality. They find it important to gain relevant experience and hope to find a full-time job within the company in the future. They are eager to learn new things and are very flexible. They have a high work productivity, especially if you look at the cost of a work student compared to normal employees.

What salary does a work student receive?

EuFlex follows the NBBU temping collective agreement and is obliged to apply the ‘inlenersbeloning’ (hirer’s remuneration). The student is scaled according to your collective agreement or remuneration scheme. If there is no collective agreement, we usually apply the salary of a student assistant. The average hourly wage of a work student is €13. So you have some indication of what you can offer a work student in terms of salary.

The advantages of a work student in the Eindhoven and brainport area

Let’s once again summarize the benefits of a work student.

  • Fresh innovative view on the organization
  • Driven personalities
  • Cheap employees
  • Highly educated at the TU/e with Challenged Based Learning
  • If it suits both parties, you can hire them right after graduation without doing any acquisition
  • No administrative hassle (EuFlex Technificent will take care of this for you!)

How do you find a suitable machine learning employee?

You don’t really have to do much yourself if you leave it to us. Contact us so that the vacancy can be posted on our website. We look for suitable candidates and you only need to select. We take care of the administrative hassle. By the way, you only pay if a student actually starts work.

Need help with Data Science? Hire a TU/e work student

By EuFlex Technificent

These days we produce an enormous amount of data. According to Wil van der Aalst, Professor of Information Systems at Eindhoven University of Technology, we produce as much data in ten minutes as we did in the period from prehistory to 2003. Unbelievable, isn’t it? Various techniques make it easier to collect data, but this also makes it harder to find valuable information from this gigantic data set. Does this happen in your company too? Then you could probably use a Data Scientist.

The benefits of Data Science within your company

Data Science is extracting the right, relevant information from a large amount of data. Analyzing data requires expertise. Data Scientists have knowledge of business, statistics and generally have programming experience. The models used in data analysis are complex, but the practical applications are concrete. The analyses created by a Data Scientist help companies operate more efficiently and learn more about customers.

Other practical applications of business analytics/Data Science include:

  • More efficient processes within the company
  • Better allocation of budgets
  • Higher customer satisfaction
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Better content

The word Data Science

The term Data Science is actually quite a broad term as well. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Deep learning and so on all mean something different. Nevertheless, they are often grouped together under the term Data Science. Despite the fact that data is the basis for all concepts, they use different forms of data analysis. So think beforehand about what you need help with when looking for a Data Scientist.

What is a work student?

By EuFlex Technificent

Actually, a work student is nothing more than a student who performs work within a company, usually in the form of a side job. Often a student works on average between 8 and 16 hours a week.

Many companies are interested in work students. Students are eager to learn and usually have a lot of knowledge of digital developments, so those are good qualities! The work students are often hired as an addition to an existing team of permanent and experienced employees. In addition, a good selection and recruitment of students leads to talented employees in the future!

What is the added value of a work student for a company?

Work students are becoming more and more popular in the Netherlands. Often, the students use the salary to pay their tuition, but it is also intended to gain work experience in the sector where they eventually want to work. These students are eager to be hired, they think seriously about their career and are not satisfied with a side job in the hospitality industry. If the student turns out to be a perfect fit with your company and develops well, he or she can start working within your company immediately after graduation. And all that without a lengthy training period and recruitment and selection process!

New view

A student can provide a new innovative look at the organization and processes. This immediately gives the company an energy boost. Students are aware of the latest techniques, tools and research in the field. They can share this knowledge directly with your company. In addition, they are not yet limited by the existing culture and processes, so they quickly find out what can be done more efficiently within the company.

High work productivity

The average work student has high work productivity, especially when you compare it to what a work student costs. Performing well now increases their chances of getting a job with the company, students are eager to prove themselves. Especially compared to workers on a permanent contract, students truly still have an urge to perform.

What salary does a work student receive?

EuFlex follows the NBBU temping collective agreement and is obliged to apply the ‘inlenersbeloning’ (hirer’s remuneration). The student is scaled according to your collective agreement or remuneration scheme. If there is no collective agreement, we usually apply the salary of a student assistant.

Looking for a work student in Eindhoven?

By EuFlex Technificent

Are you looking for a work student to fill in a (temporary) project within your company? Then you are in the right place! EuFlex Technificent can help you out. We know how to connect the right talents with the business world, but we also know how to find the right match with students for our clients. With a network of over 3000 TU/e students, we have a wide range of possibilities to fulfill your specific needs.

Our students are employed for various projects. Think of temporary projects, seasonal jobs, but also for consultancy, software engineering and data science jobs. Some examples of jobs you can think of are:

  • Software engineers
  • Junior structural engineer
  • Junior data consultant
  • Translation jobs
  • Cloud/Infrastructure Engineer
  • IT Specialist

Who are the different work students from Eindhoven?

As mentioned above, we have a large network of over 3000 technical students. These students are all registered on our platform. They study at different faculties and programs at TU/e, such as:

  • Faculty of Biomedical Technology
  • Faculty of Architecture
  • Faculty of Electrical Engineering
  • Faculty of Industrial Design
  • Faculty of Industrial Engineering & Innovation
  • Faculty of Chemical Technology
  • Faculty of Applied Physics

For all programs, please click here.

The students of the TU/e are used to working in multidisciplinary teams through challenge based learning. With challenge based learning the theoretical knowledge is directly applied in practice. As a result, the students develop not only subject-specific knowledge but also other skills such as researching, cooperating, dealing with uncertainty, solution-oriented thinking, organizing and communicating. These are skills that are required in the business world. We therefore believe that this approach and knowledge will definitely be of added value for any company.

What can you expect from a work student?

Work students are often highly motivated and eager to prove themselves. Besides the fact that he or she wants to earn money to pay for their studies, this is also an opportunity for the student to have a look at the industry and gain relevant work experience. If the student does his best and there is a mutual click, there is a chance that the student can stay after his studies. Most students who are looking for a relevant job are seriously thinking about their career and will not settle for a job in the hospitality industry. So, I would say these are some good qualities!

In addition, a student gives a new innovative look at the organization and processes. Students are aware of the latest techniques, tools and latest research from the field. This immediately gives the company new energy and this knowledge can be shared within the company.

What can students expect from the company?

For students, it is important that they are treated just like other employees. In this way, the student will quickly feel at home in the work environment. It is also important to remember that the student is studying full-time in combination with his or her job. Some periods are busier than others due to exams, so it is important to be flexible. Try to make clear agreements to avoid misunderstandings.

Write the best work student vacancy for your company

By EuFlex Technificent

To stay ahead of the shortage in the technical labor market, hiring a work student is a wise choice. A work student can help you out with (temporary) projects and, once the student has graduated, they can be employed without having to make any effort at acquisition. To find the right student, it is important to post a good vacancy. This job posting should get students’ attention and be attractive to this target group. In this article we will take you through the process of writing a good work student vacancy.

How do you attract technical work students with a vacancy?

Put yourself in the student’s shoes
From my own experience as a work student, I can tell you that for me vacancies do not have to be formal at all. Write as you speak, this is often experienced as personal and students can find themselves in this. So be yourself and try to put yourself in the student’s shoes.

State the salary
It’s probably not what you want to hear, but students work mainly to earn some extra money to pay for their studies (of course the experience they gain is a good side effect). Almost all job postings talk about a market conform or appropriate salary, try to break the salary taboo and mention what the student will earn. This is much more interesting for work students and in addition you will distinguish yourself from your competitors!

Be flexible as a company
Also important to keep in mind is that a student’s schedule can vary from week to week (I speak from my own experience). Therefore, for a work student, it is very important that a company is flexible. One week the student may be able to work on Wednesday and Thursday, but perhaps the next week this will be on Monday and Thursday. Try to make room for this within your company and mention in your vacancy that the company likes to think along with the student.

Provide clarity
At EuFlex we usually assume that a work student can work between 8 and 16 hours per week. This can of course be more or less, just clearly state in the vacancy what you are looking for. It is important for both parties that the study and job go well.

No long lists of requirements
Stop with a very long list of requirements. You are hiring a work student, which means that they often do not have years of experience in a large corporate company. A long list of requirements scares off working students, because they often do not feel qualified enough for the job. While they are probably competent enough! So rather look at the character of the student, is he/she eager to learn? Do you expect the student to be able to learn things quickly? What skills does the student already have?  This is much more important to know than years of experience!

List career opportunities
There is a good chance that the working student will want to continue working for your company after graduation. So this means you won’t have to recruit a suitable candidate in the future if you have already done this now! They help you out now and you will also benefit in the future. Win-win!

Tips for writing a work student vacancy.

It is of course important that your vacancy stands out from all the others. It is also important to aim at the target group, in this case students who are looking for a job. So first think about the knowledge, experience and talents you are looking for in your ideal candidate. When you don’t have this clear it will be very difficult to write a good and clear vacancy. So take your time and write it down for yourself in keywords.

The tips for writing a good working student vacancy listed:

  • Tip 1: Draw up a detailed job profile, do not use standard terms. Try to be distinctive, you want to stand out!
  • Tip 2: Do research on the channels where your target group is located.
  • Tip 3: Determine a clear strategy for your recruitment method. For example, are you going to use paid advertising on the different channels where your potential candidates are? Or are you going to send personal messages? Consider these choices carefully and look at the pros and cons of these options.
  • Tip 4: Write a well-organized job posting. This means short sentences, clear headings, summaries and write the most important things at the front of the text. Bullet point lists often work well!
  • Tip 5: Pay attention to the working atmosphere of the company. Candidates want to know what kind of company they will be working in. If you have another work student, let him or her write a personal note about the experiences as a work student.
  • Tip 6: Describe the career development possibilities in the student work vacancy. Chances are that the student worker will want to continue working after graduating, so it is interesting if he or she can already read about the possibilities.

What can you offer work students?

The salary
To give you some idea of what you can offer the students as a salary, we always use the salary indication of student assistants at the TU/e. At EuFlex we are obliged to apply the ‘inlenersbeloning’ (hirer’s remuneration). The student is scaled according to your collective labor agreement or remuneration scheme. If there is no collective agreement, we apply the salary of student assistants.

Make good arrangements
As mentioned earlier, it is important to offer flexibility to a work student. Fixed hours and fixed days are difficult to combine with a full time study. Especially since the study schedule does not take side jobs into account. If possible, give the student the opportunity to work at home, so that the work student can also work in the evening or during weekends. If this is not possible, it is important to make good agreements together.

Good match? Win-win! Offer the student a job after graduation!
Offer the work student the opportunity to continue working after graduation if it proves to be a good match. This is interesting for both parties! We can’t say this often enough.

Treat the student as a real employee
Treat the work student just like the other employees, that way the student will feel comfortable the quickest. Make the side job in the vacancy interesting and attractive to the young generation.
