It's no secret. No one has enough money during their studies, and therefore, a student job can never hurt. It can be difficult to find the student job that's just right for you. Some cost too much time, some don't pay enough, and some simply aren't looking to hire students. Lucky for you, GDCC Rotterdam is currently looking for new student employees and there is little reason not to apply there.
If you're looking for a job with a good pay, flexible hours, and a great learning experience, GDCC is the right place for you. But what is GDCC? GDCC stands for the Global Data Collection Company. This data is collected by conducting telephone calls in various languages across the world.
