On-Campus Jobs

 

Work Study

 

 

Working while attending classes has advantages beyond helping with college tuition and expenses. 

Students who work 10 hours or less a week while carrying a normal course load typically have no

problems with studying and maintaining a good GPA.  In fact, working on-campus can help a student:

 

 

- Learn to organize tasks, enhancing abilities of prioritizing and time management,


- Develop a network (employers can be great mentors and future job references),


- Learn new skills (office or laboratory-specific),


- Develop critical work habits (supervisors can be flexible, yet encourage responsibility),

 

- Feel a greater connection with the community, (both with students and faculty/staff).

 

 

On-campus jobs are of two types - Work Study and other non-Work Study positions.   Every employee of Mines, including students, must complete all Human Resources materials before beginning work.
