Although "the world has not come to a standstill," companies clearly need to think more carefully about their spending and are working with fewer staff compared to last year, Nándor Majzik, head of the Meló-Diák School Association, told napi.hu.

He underscored that the demand for student workers fell by about 5% this year.

About 200,000 students work in Hungary every year, the vast majority of them, some 140,000-150,000, through school cooperatives.

There is no significant change in terms of the most sought-after jobs.

Festival, beach, leisure park, and hotel jobs are very popular, followed by stocking and sales roles. Hard, physical, monotonous factory and agricultural work are less in demand.
