So many jobs, so little time…some options and tips for those seeking jobs

Living at college is not always the easiest thing financially, and most students would not mind a little extra money in their pockets.

The university provides the opportunity to receive federal work study through the government or Eastern Campus Employment through departmental budgets.

Through both of these options, students can get paid for working in one of several departments on campus.

The best thing to do when looking for a job is to ask. Go to the different departments, department heads and professors to find out whether they are looking for student employees and what they want students to do.

After speaking with someone in the department about an application or interview, have a W-4, I-9 and employment contract signed by your supervisor. All of these papers must be submitted before September 30, 2006.
