The School of Life: College Students at Work and in School
Russian Education and Society, v49 n10 p86-95 Oct 2007
Many college students in Russia are working while attending school: young people not only want to improve their material condition but also try to start their professional career as soon as possible, so that by the end of their schooling they will be specialists who are in demand as a result of their experience and on-the-job training. This article describes the results of a survey by the Institute for the Systematic Analysis of the Social Problems of Megalopolises and the Russian Center to Promote Young People's Entrepreneurship, on the issue of college students' temporary employment. The survey was conducted in 2005 with a representative sample in twenty-five cities of Russia. It explored why college students look for ways to earn money while in school, and discerned the indicators that make it possible to judge a connection between working on the side and the specialty being acquired. It examined what the students prefer in a temporary job, the range of job vacancies that they fill while in school, and the factors that tend to strengthen the connection between their specialty and their temporary job.
