Abstract [en]

Many university students are aware of the tough labor competition that prevails today, therefore many students place great importance on looking employable in the labor market. This study aims  at  finding out  what  motives  are  behind  the non-profit  engagement  of  human  resource students, meaning a job done without compensation. The purpose is to investigate and create a deeper understanding of the underlying motives of why human resource students are involved in  non-profit  engagement  and  if  they  feel  more  employable  because  of  their  involvement. Previous research on the subject shows that many students choose to be non-profit engaged because of merit and more career opportunities.To  study  the  area,  semistructured  interviews  have  been  used  as  a  method.  Seven  human resource students who are involved in non-profit work have been interviewed and formed the basis of the empirical material. In order to gain an understanding of the underlying motives of human resource students, the theories of Weber and Bauman have been used as a starting point and Bernsons definition of the word employable.The study results show that human resource students are motivated by the merits and networks that  the  non-profit  engagement  contributes  to.  Finally,  it  can  be  found  that  the  underlying motivation of human resource students are many, but the need to distinguish themselves for their future manager is great.
