For students looking for a job, typically there are a couple of main things that they are looking for. First, it needs to be flexible in order to work with their school schedule and allow them study time, and second, it needs to pay them well enough that they can afford to continue on with their studies. While that may seem like a small list of priorities, often it can be hard to find a job that checks off both those boxes.
