OPPORTUNITIES & BENEFITS OF WORKING ON CAMPUS
Colleges and universities offer thousands of on-campus jobs for students who want to get involved with campus while earning some income. With the rising cost of tuition, many students are turning to part-time jobs to cut some of the cost and work towards paying off loans while still in school. But, balancing academics and work can be tricky. Working on-campus allows for a more convenient alternative, cutting transportation cost and time, and allowing students to make university connections.
The best place to start your job search is right on campus. There are tons of on-campus part-time job opportunities and, as a student, you’ll automatically be given hiring priority. Check with your school's career office or student employment office for help finding a campus job. If you receive financial aid, also check on jobs available through your campus work-study program.
LIBRARY MONITOR – If you're worried you won't have enough time to devote to academics, consider working as a study hall or library monitor. Responsibilities generally include the supervision of study spaces to ensure a quiet atmosphere. It's a pretty easy job, but one with lots of downtime, which means you'll have plenty of time to catch up on reading, do homework or study for an exam.
ADMIN ASSISTANT – There are so many different places for a student to work as an admin assistant on campus. You'll likely find these jobs in the academic departments and admissions offices. Some busy professors might also seek personal admin assistants. These jobs probably won’t be very high-paying, but they tend to be low-stress and pretty casual. If you work in an academic department that you’re interested in, you'll have the opportunity to develop some valuable professional connections.
GRADER – With some classes have as many as 500 students enrolled, that's a lot of tests to grade, so professors often employ students within the department to grade tests. Although it's grunt work, the workload is generally spread out based on when the tests are, leaving lots of time in between for academics and extracurricular interests.
MAIL ROOM ASSISTANT – Mail rooms are usually located very close to student dorms, which also makes them conveniently located if you need to run to work after you sleep through your alarm. But there are other benefits to working in the mail room, it's a great way to meet other people on campus, for one. You also may have down time to work on other stuff, like catching up on your reading for classes.
