Student Job Safety

Student Safety

Although we post most of the work experience jobs listed ourselves, we do allow employers to list their own jobs. These are read (and can only be listed by admin), however, due to the volume of jobs received by Rent a Student, we are unable to confirm the integrity of every position listed 100%. Students are urged to research positions / employers and to conduct due diligence themselves. We encourage students to use common sense and to exercise caution when applying for positions. Do not put yourself in a vulnerable situation ever. Also, do not accept work if you feel uncomfortable with the working hours e.g. late shifts / overnight.

  • Use common sense when applying for and engaging in off-campus employment. If a potential employer asks you to participate in an activity that makes you uncomfortable in any way, don’t do it. If you wish, report it to us and we will investigate.
  • Be wary of ‘check cashing scams.’ If someone asks you to deposit a check/money order into your personal account and send money to another individual, you should refuse and contact our office immediately.
  • NEVER pay for a position or materials to get you a position. Genuine employers will never as you for money before you commence work. Seriously, never!
  • Please be aware that Rent-a-Student will list employment opportunities on this website only. We are unable to prevent other websites from copying our listings and reposting them elsewhere.

    So far so good, no “incidents”! Well done students and thanks employers. We are currently checking about 80% of all positions posted and DO NOT post any “iffy” jobs… Remember, if the job sounds to good.. it probably is! don’t apply for “Female Model required” – we won’t list jobs gender or race based where possible (sometimes, for your benefit we may specify male/famale). Happy job hunting!

    I’ve been using this site for three consecutive years since I started university introduce by a friend, now my issue is that ever since than, I have been applying for part time jobs that I think they are relevant to the course that I am studying (Events Management), but unfortunately for me I have never got any job. Updated my resume several times trying to fit in for the vacancy through the jobs that I got by connections because legitimately I need to have a working experience in most of the vacancies on this site. Now my question is how am I supposed to have experience if I am fresh from high school trying to pursue my dreams at Varsity, but yet cant find the job.
    Student at CPUT Cape Town.

    I have answered several surveys on your website that guaranteed a payout. I have not received any money as of yet …how should I proceed. How do I receive the payments

    • Comment made by rentastudent on Oct 16th 2019 at 2:43 pm: Reply

      Kyllie, apologies for delays. It depends on the client. For the SIM only airtime for sure you will be rewarded. The Church one, not so sure, they gone quiet. One minute we are all buddies and need 500 evangelists, next nothing?? Bottom line, it is your data. We promise to be very careful with it. Soon as thing go ahead we will be sending you some money.
