Great concept for students and a fantastic opportunity to build a good reference for your CV. It addresses important topics, which typically are difficult to assess with job applicants and makes many issues tangible, e.g. reliability, flexibility, ambition, etc. AND students can earn good money doing it. The big gap employers always seek – EXPERIENCE is also addressed. Fabulous idea.
