GUST Offers Remote Student Employment Option
Kuwait City, 28 June 2021: Gulf University for Science and Technology revealed its development of the Student Employment System, releasing a new application that allows students to apply for student employee positions remotely. This step comes in line with the precautionary measures implemented by the university and the country, transitioning student employment into a remote work system.
Once a student’s application has been received, the Office of Student Life, which runs the program, will conduct a job interview with the applicant through Microsoft Teams. The program adopts a part-time system, which aims to provide students with practical experience as well as refining their administrative skills in a real work environment, thus preparing them for the labor market after graduation. Student employment provides assistance and support to the various departments of the university and colleges, which saves time and speeds up the pace of work in various sectors, while giving students significant work experience to add to their CVs. The Student Employment Program also provides a monthly financial reward and flexible hours which takes the student’s academic obligations into account so that no scheduling conflicts occur. Students of all majors can register in the program to work in the various departments of the university during their spare time.
Office of Student Life Specialist, Ms. Perihan Al Tanani said “The Student Employment Program online application brings new opportunities to students and provides students with the potential to develop their skills in working remotely. We are proud to develop this new system and create a more streamlined application process, allowing the students to gain access to more work opportunities.”
The Student Employment System helps students obtain their work placement which is a graduation requirement for some degrees. Students can also obtain a co-curricular transcript upon graduation which includes students working hours and experience, boosting their future careers.
