Otago students earnings up 15%

Student Job Search figures show Otago students earned over $8 million dollars through the service last year.

This figure is up 15% since 2011.

OUSA President Francisco Hernandez says with government support becoming tougher for students to gain every year, any extra money they can earn is really important.

Although the slow labour market last year saw a decrease in placements, those finding work through the service were earning more money.
