Those graduating or ending their studies in June or July are still allowed to work as a student during the summer holiday. After this holiday period, in other words after 30 September, you are no longer allowed to work as a student.
A holiday job with a student contract extends the wait for the National Employment Office (NEO), the so-called vocational development phase, by the duration of the holiday job. This is the period that school-leavers must cover before being entitled to an integration allowance.
Students terminating their studies prematurely during the course of the school year and signing up as a job-seeker are no longer allowed to work as a student.
