Student Employment On Campus

Working on campus has many benefits

In addition to earning money, making friends, and learning about the University, working on campus can help you build your resume and develop the professional skills important for your future success!

  • Work experience is one of the most influential factors employers consider when deciding between two otherwise equally qualified job candidates (National Association of Colleges and Employers, 2021).
  • College graduates are almost two times more likely to be engaged in their chosen profession if they had a position in college that allowed them to apply their learned coursework in an employment setting (Gallup-Purdue Index 2015).
