As college admissions skyrocket, the number of students in need of some financial support has also continued to increase fuelled by economic recessions. This has forced some full-time students to turn to part-time employment in order to finance the cost of their higher education. The students use most of the money earned to finance essential living expenses.
The challenge at hand is to find alternative ways of increasing available paid part-time job opportunities for students in need of financial support to earn some income for their upkeep. We are challenging a team of fellows to build a platform that connects these students to paid part-time job opportunities at scale.
