Working Off-Campus

You can use job boards like Handshake or Seven Days to find local businesses seeking part-time employees. Some area businesses may prefer to have you apply in person, so don't be afraid to drop by and ask for an application. International students, be sure that you understand your immigration status and how it impacts your eligibility for off campus employment.
