Students look for career-related work
Students are looking for part-time work that is related to their chosen career path, new research suggests.

Conducted by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), the study shows that compared to 2004, 37 per cent more undergraduates are in career-orientated term-time work.

In fact, 41 per cent of students will be working part-time and studying for their degree this academic year.

This follows recent research from NatWest, which discovered that 50,000 gap year students are using a year's break from education to work and earn money rather than travel the globe.

Mark Worthington, RBS head of student banking, said: "Students now recognise that a degree combined with work experience improves their CVs and job prospects after university.

"Taking on term-time jobs which are relevant to their future careers provides excellent experience as well as much needed extra money."

The survey found marketing, advertising and management consultancy are all areas that undergraduates are now working in.
