In between paying for textbooks and your daily coffee run, money can sometimes be hard to come by. As a student, it’s easy to doubt whether you can balance taking classes, getting involved on campus, and working, but don’t let your fear control your finances. On-campus employment is a great solution to make money while still succeeding in school.
The University of Toledo offers hundreds of on-campus jobs to students. Some students qualify for Federal Work Study (FWS) through financial aid, but even if you don’t have FWS, finding an on-campus job is still a great possibility!
The Center for Experiential Learning and Career Services (CELCS) provides countless employment resources on campus, including career and major exploration with trained career counselors, professional development training such as resume revision and mock interviews, and various career workshops and job fairs throughout the year.
One of the most frequently used resources offered by CELCS is RocketJobs. RocketJobs is a website accessible through your myUT portal (“Student” > “My Toolkit” > “My Other Resources” > “RocketJobs”) that allows you to see positions that UT offices and departments post for students.
On-campus employers understand that the most important part of being a student-worker is that you’re a student first. By working on campus, you’ll never work more than 20 hours per week, which makes it easy to balance classes and your work schedule. You make your own work schedule around your class schedule, and employers understand that you might need time off work to prepare for a big project or exam.
