Students who want to work will normally be successful in finding a job. You should begin your job search as soon as you arrive on-campus.
There are two categories of Student Employment: Regular Student Employment and Work-Study Employment. Students who have been notified that they are eligible for Work Study employment and have received the Work Study Student Personnel Action form from the Financial Aid Self Help office may apply for either. If you have not been notified that you are eligible for Work Study, you may apply for regular student employment positions.
Many job openings will be posted on our on-line Job Board (see menu at left). But, we suggest that you not limit yourself to applying only for posted jobs. Many employers receive a sufficient applicant pool from "walk-ins". If you know where you want to work, contact that department even if a job is not posted.
The job application process is mostly informal. There is not a general application you need to complete but some offices may ask you to complete a departmental application. Follow the application instructions in each posting.
Here are some tips to maximize your chance of a successful job search:
