Advantages to having a Part-Time Job while attending Post-Secondary School


Working part-time while attending university or college has many benefits. Some students may shy away from work because of the belief that they won’t have enough time for their studies if they are also working. The fact is that there are many on-campus jobs available for students that are extremely flexible and adaptable to student’s school schedules.

Check out the links below. Here you can find many different part-time on-campus jobs. Career Zone has both on-campus and off-campus jobs.

Working Off-Campus

If you can’t find work on-campus, don’t be worried about working off-campus. Employers who hire students are aware that you are in school and usually expect that they need to be flexible in order to accommodate your schedule.

Be sure to discuss schedule flexibility in an interview. It is important to be honest with yourself and the employer. If the employer requests that you work a number of hours that you feel are too much in addition to your studies, then let the employer know. If you turn down the job, you will at least have gained interview experience.

Benefits working while attending College or University

As a Senior Career Assistant, I see many students who have been well educated, but lack real world work experience. Education is important to have, but employers also like to see candidates who have work related skills and experience. This type of experience can be gained through volunteering, internships and jobs.

If you have any other questions about working on or off-campus, stop by the Career Resource Centre in the Learning Commons; or check out our resources online at http://brocku.ca/career-services]
