Set Realistic Expectations

When considering the type of jobs that would work best for you, take some time to think about what you want to get out of the job (besides a paycheck). Evaluate your skills and qualifications, and what kind of time you have in your schedule to commit to a job – then plan accordingly.

Do Your Homework

The best time to look for on-campus jobs is the first few weeks before and after the start of a new semester, when most UA departments will be recruiting new student employees. The best place to start looking for available jobs is the UA Student Jobsite.

Be Prepared

Some of the most important steps in finding a job must happen before you even fill out an application. Use our job search toolkit to learn about getting prepared to put your best foot forward.
