The Part-time Job Expo is quickly approaching and employers will be on campus to speak to students interested in working part-time jobs and having internships that are local, on-and-off campus.  UCS can assist you in other ways to find part-time jobs and internships.

Why get a part-time job?

Money

It’s that simple, working students will have more money. Be it for tuition, planning for Spring Break, or paying back student loans, the money is yours and you’ve earned it!

Budgeting

Student who earn their own money tend to spend it wisely, reducing frivolous spending.

Time Management

Any student who takes on a part-time job should understand that they are a student FIRST and will have less free time than non-working students. As a result, working students tend to be better planners and work well with deadlines because they have learned how to prioritize their responsibilities.

Experience

A part-time job can introduce you to a possible career path and allow you to gain important foundational skills and experience. I may also place you in a position where you expand your network of individuals who work in your field of interest. Having a part-time job can allow employers to see that you understand the work environment and professional world.
