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.

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.
