Finding a Job
Quick Tips to Finding a Job:
-What skills do you have from other jobs, volunteerism, internships or classes? Apply to employers on or off campus who could appreciate those skills.
-In what kind of environment have you worked or volunteered? Inquire at departments that fit your background, ie. food service, technical areas, outdoor work, or office settings.
-Remember to emphasize skills you have used that fit the needs of the job you are applying to! Don’t let the employer assume you have skills, tell them!
-When dropping off applications or stopping by to inquire about a possible job, dress up and look like you are ready to go to work. First impressions count!
-Be as flexible as you can about the hours and days you are available.
