Finding a JobPosted September 13th, 2012 by mayersl
Looking for a job on campus? Luckily, employers across campus are flexible when it comes to working with students, they understand class schedules, demands of coursework, and clubs and organizations. Career Services at Oregon State offers numerous ways to find a job on-campus, as well as off-campus (depending on what you are looking for).
Check out Beaver JobNet, OSU’s online job database system that has a section specifically for on-campus jobs.
- First Time Beaver JobNet Users: You will be asked to fill out a short profile. When your profile is completed your personal Beaver JobNet homepage will appear on the screen and you are now ready to begin your job search!
- On-campus job listings are under Student Jobs on the right-hand side of the homepage. Click on Student On & Off Campus Jobs (Not Work Study).
- Federal Work Study: If you have been awarded work study with a financial aid package, you are eligible for work study student jobs (as well as regular, non-work study student jobs). You can find a listing of these jobs on Beaver JobNet by clicking on the Federal Work Study Jobs link on the right-hand side of your homepage.
Make sure you are on your major’s listserves and if not talk to your advisors. Find listserves to join.
Some departments are always accepting applications and therefore do not always post jobs on Beaver JobNet. Other departments you have to approach in order to get a job.
Ask your friends where they work and that you are interested in a job on campus. Oftentimes people hire by referrals from current employees.
Continue to recheck the following websites because job opportunities are constantly being updated for different terms.
You can also work off campus in the community. Check out our section on Local Jobs for ideas and opportunities. Don’t have a car to get to a job off-campus? Check out No Car, No Problems for helpful transportation tips in Corvallis!
