Students as Non-Standard Employees. Exploring Work Related Issues in Students’ Perceptions on their Term-time Job

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


The article presents the results of an explorative study that aimed at exploring work
related issues in students’ perceptions of their job as atypical employees. An individual
picture of the experienced work reality of students is drawn according to work task,
flexible working hours, instructions and training opportunities, students’ relations to
other employees, and social integration. By adopting a qualitative design, I was able to
emphasize the subjective perspective of students describing their very own experiences
as flexible workers. The study revealed various perceptions of students working
as flexible employees and related this picture to current empirical and theoretical research
in the field of non-standard employment.
