Working on campus during the summer can be a great way to obtain gainful employment as well as the chance to secure a job for the academic year. It is also a great way to meet people, help pay for school and enhance your resume for post-grad employment. Each college or university campus offers different incentives for being an employee. Some offer competitive pay rates, but compensation tends to vary by school and type of employment. A summer job on campus can include anything from retail and food service to research in your faculty. Time commitments also tend to vary from part-time to temporary/seasonal to full-time. It is best to consult your school’s career resources or their website to see if there are any openings and how to apply.
Working on campus during the summer is a great way to further your education while making some extra money. If you are also taking a summer or intersession course for academic credit, you may be applicable for financial aid bursaries from your school. Bursaries are monetary grants allocated to students based on financial need and are non-repayable. Being aware of financial aid you may be qualified for will help to supplement your tuition and living expenses in the coming years.
