Centrica now reviewing student holiday jobs
The Centrica is reviewing the current job scenario among the students during their college break. It shows worry about their taking up of low skilled jobs which may be harmful for them in future.
Recently it has been observed that the students pursuing their studies in country’s universities work for low skilled jobs during their holiday’s period.
The students during their college holidays take up low skilled jobs in restaurants, bars and other little jobs and according to the experts those students who are taking up such jobs are darkening the future for themselves. They believe who are not undergoing their professional training and are taking up low skilled jobs are risking their future, as they may not get an appropriate high skill job after completing their courses.
Centrica that had been ignited by the students union are of the point of view that in holidays the students should seek relevant experience the courses they are studying rather than just concentrating on little paying jobs as taking up such jobs may be harmful for their career in coming times and also is at risk for their long term job prospects with the respectable organizations.
Experts are of the view that as the students numbers are increasing year by year, stiff competition are expected for the employments issues in coming times, according to the students should be very serious about the career they have chosen for themselves, they should start gaining experience in their profession by taking up training and other options. Working for low skilled jobs will not help them getting a position that would make them standout from the other students.
But students have other face of the situation, the National Union of Students, says they had to take up such jobs as the cost of living is rising day by day, such jobs are their only escape to cope with this pressure. Getting these jobs is also not easy for them they have to compete against the other students to get the limited summer placements.
Statistics have shown around eight out of ten students have chosen working just for earning extra money during their classes are off.
No doubt that Centrica are offering students around 75 internships each year that lasts around for 10 weeks but according to the student union there are limited numbers of such schemes available for the intern students by the UK employers throughout the country. The union says that even the students are more interested in taking up jobs which will help them with their experience in the course they would be graduating, but for this they need more relevant jobs and more employers should work on this and invest more on such projects.
