75% of College Students Interested in Working More Hours while in School, InstaEDU Reports

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

InstaEDU, the tutoring service that allows students to connect on-demand with tutors from top colleges for academic support, today announced insights from a survey of college students at top colleges and universities. While excelling academically remains students top concern while on campus, almost three quarters of those surveyed would like to work more each week than they currently do. The survey, sent to 450 students who recently signed up as tutors for InstaEDU, asked students about their working habits including how many hours per week they work, why they work, and how often theyd like to work.

Millennials are often given a bad rap for being unmotivated or disinterested in working hard, but our survey results show that many college students have a real desire to spend time working, in addition to spending time in the classroom, said Dan Johnston, InstaEDU COO and cofounder. More than half of the students we surveyed responded that, given the choice, theyd prefer to work more hours each week than they currently do. The challenge is fitting in time to work, given that students number one priority while on campus is excelling academically.

Working on Campus

Almost three quarters of students surveyed said that they wished they could work more hours each week. Of the respondents, 55 percent work fewer than 10 hours each week with only 16 percent of college students working more than 15 hours per week. Students overwhelmingly reported that flexibility in hours was the most important factor in determining what makes an ideal job while in school. In fact, 65 percent of respondents listed this first in answering What makes an ideal job to have while in school? After flexibility, pay was next most popular choice for students (24 percent of respondents); only 7 percent of students chose looks good on my resume, in responding to what makes a position ideal.

Academics Remain Primary Focus

While students are interested in working while on campusprimarily to have spending money while at school66 percent reported that their first priority on campus was doing well academically. Only 23 percent of respondents said that preparing for a job post-college was their primary concern in working while at school. For most college students, having fun while on campus and financial concerns are less important than doing well in school and preparing for post-college work. With academics overwhelmingly being reported as the top priority for students while in school, its not surprising that many students wouldnt have time to work as many hours per week as they — or their credit card statements — might prefer. It also may be difficult for students to find positions on campus with enough flexibility for them to continue to prioritize their studies.

I have a very busy academic schedule, explained Stanford University student Deepak Jaiswal. My own academic commitments are the biggest impediment to getting more work while in school.

Working with InstaEDU

All survey respondents are part-time tutors for InstaEDU. InstaEDU hires students from top colleges to work as tutors for its online tutoring service. After an interview, they connect with InstaEDU via either Facebook chat or GChat and from there, InstaEDU can message a tutor when he or she is online, when a student is looking for tutoring in a subject the tutor is proficient in. Tutors choose if and when theyd like to work with students and all tutors are paid $ 20 per hour.

Students interested in can learn more about tutoring with InstaEDU on the InstaEDU website: http://instaedu.com/become-a-tutor/
