1. Begin By Thinking Of What It Is You Want To Do

It works by aligning the skills you have by the jobs that might be available on campus. Do you have a first hand knowledge about the library? You can be a library attendant then.

Perhaps, you have never thought about looking through your school website to check for jobs. As customary, many colleges have online databases where they post job openings for students.

You should check on this with your school website. Also, if you are eligible for the Federal Student Work Experience Program, check www.canada.ca to see jobs that are available.

 

3. Polish Your Resumé

A well-detailed and presentable resume is one of the important factors of landing your dream job. That you are looking for a job on campus doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention to your resume. In fact, you should polish your resume and treat the job you hope to get as you would a formal job.

A cover letter too can be a lot more helpful too.

4. Don’t Be Scared To Ask People To Help

Networking what you need to people is an essential way of getting it. You may have friends who are benefiting big time by working on campus, ask if there are openings at where they work on campus or ask if they can connect you to the manager or supervisor at their workplace.

It shouldn’t be only restricted to asking your friends alone. You can also ask an acquaintance of yours working on campus to help you.
