Other projects we have access to include more mundane tasks such as proof reading, translation, article writing, research, data entry etc.

      Pleasure, just trying to do our bit for the youth, government doesn’t seem to be doing much and with the grant situation these jobs are invaluable. SPREAD THE WORD!

        Don’t blame the government, it’s not their job to provide jobs (or any other free services eg. housing, water, electricity, social grants etc.) People in SA need to ditch the something for nothing attitude and make their own way.

          Heh Cathy, not sure what you response is in reply too? What I can say is Rent-a-Student is finding work for students, but you think we can get a grant or any assistance from Government? I tried, nothing. If we got some assistance we could help many more students. If you comment is about grants for students, then the Government SHOULD be helping!

    I have been trying to update my details but I can’t upload my cv because none of the formats e.g. .docx, .rtf, .pdf, etc are allowed. What formats are allowed?

    • Comment made by John on Jul 12th 2014 at 9:07 am: Reply

      Not sure the exact ones allowed, but I have plenty of resumes uploaded. Please try another format. I am sure word docs and pdfs are ok??

    Are jobs only available for varsity students? If not what is the youngest age applicable for most of these job opportunities? Just came across this site, quite interested. Big thumbs up for what you are doing for the youth of this beautiful country!

      Thanks Georgia

      The site is for all Youth. 17 is the youngest. Clearly we are mostly helping Students, but youth but also apply. The employers do not insist on students, but we check CV’s and place the most appropriate.
