Anita Botos has also been working there as a student for several years. For her, this job is the means of living. I don’t work in order to be able to buy clothes or go on holidays but because I’m self-supporting. This job is good because I work when I want to and this way I can take my exams, too.” – Anita related to local DTV.
In Debrecen, there are nearly a dozen student associations most of which offer jobs for students all the year. A worker of one of these associations (Furge Diak) said that in the winter, fewer students work. While they can provide jobs for as many as 1000 students in summer, right now they have 200 clients. According to Adrienn Racz it’s because fewer students want to work and also because most of the agricultural work is done in summer.
The Schonherz School Association finds job for about 350 students a month. 80 per cent of the students here works all year.
