Student FAQ

What is Studium?

Studium is an online platform that allows students and employers to connect with each other directly. On Studium’s platform, employers are actively looking for students to employ. The student creates their profile just once and gets notifications from employers that they are interested in talking to them about potential jobs.

Jobs on offer can include internships, work experience, vacation work, part time and full time positions.

How does it work?

Once you register with Studium, we’ll email you a link so you can verify and create your profile. You can upload your pic, resume, work examples and videos among other things. From there, you’ll turn up in employer searches and if an employer thinks you fit, they’ll contact you through the app, where you can reply immediately.

How do employers get in touch with me?

When an employer searches for candidates on Studium, they enter a few search criteria and Studium generates a list of candidates for them.

The Employer will then look at each candidate, and ‘shortlist’ them. If you get shortlisted, Studium will notify you via email and if the employer wants to get in touch, they’ll click a button on your profile which will send you an email/text alerting you that they’re interested in chatting.

From there, you can correspond directly with the employer and set up a phone call, video conference or webchat.

What kind of video should I make?

Your intro video can be in any format or style you like. A simple video shot with your phone will do fine.
As a guide, try to think of what an employer would want to know about you and what qualities you possess that would be attractive to a potential employer.

Why should I register with Studium?

You don’t want to be the only person in your class who’s not getting contacted by employers, do you? More and more businesses are starting their search here.

How do I create my profile on Studium?

It’s easy! Just register and our onboarding process will guide you through. You can create your profile on any device from your phone to your desktop, and you can always update it later as you get more experience or new documentation.

Do employers hire university students?

Absolutely! We’ve had a long history of working with employers who have hired a mix of experienced workers and students with success. We’ve even worked with organisations that hire students exclusively.

Many companies recognise the benefits of hiring students. Students tend to be eager to learn, familiar with new technology and have a fresh, unsullied outlook, which can be advantageous to an organisation. Never assume that you’re not valued as a student. You have attributes that are right for many organisations and we’ll help them find you.

Do I need to provide my grades?

Nope. You control your profile so you show what you want to show. Uploading your transcript may be helpful to some employers and we have partnering universities who can supply your academic details, but again, it’s up to you as to whether you display them.

Can I find unpaid interns on Studium?
