Please read the information below, if you are seeking a job, on or off-campus: ~~~ Off-Campus Jobs Board:  The CMC may have a few listings for Off-Campus jobs, both part time and full-time, with companies not associated with the University.  The CMC is located in the SE Welcome Center across from the campus Book Store.

How to Improve Your Chances of Obtaining Employment on Campus and Elsewhere:  It is recommended, when you approach someone to apply for a job, you wear appropriate, clean attire.  Do not expect an employer (on-campus or otherwise) to be impressed with you if you dress poorly or smell as if you have just come from a workout (see below).  An employer is NOT required to give you a job just because you are eligible to work.   Research & Follow Up:  Be sure to know what an employer actually does and wants you to do, before you apply for a job with them.  Research what the office is/does and find out what your actual duties will be before you apply for the job.

Follow up with the employer within one week of turning in your application.  That means call them or drop by their office/business to let them know you are still interested in the job.  Always be polite to whomever assists you and show up 10-15 minutes early for interviews and/or each work day if you are hired.   Once you are hired, you are supposed to actually go to work.  A job is different than going to class.  You can miss a few classes, if the instructor is lenient; but if you miss work without permission, you may be terminated. What to wear to an interview:  Casual to Business Casual is appropriate when applying for an on-campus job; casual is usually best when applying for a fast food job.  Business professional is best if applying at an office, bank or a place where professionals frequent.

Casual does not include t-shirt and/or shorts.  Minimize showing off piercings and tattoos if possible.  A professional or, at the very least, a Business Casual appearance is helpful when seeking jobs, both on-campus jobs and jobs in the community. 

Soft Skills are important to most employers.  You do not have to tell others you have them, but it is important to demonstrate them on a daily basis, especially when on the job:

  • Show up for work when scheduled/expected.
  • Be on time for interviews, work and all appointments.
  • Wear clothing appropriate to the job; for interviews, dress up!
  • Be courteous.  Learn and practice excellent communication skills and customer service.
