Jobs classified as “Job, Part-time” are available to any and all students. These jobs are located off campus and also vary in salary, beginning at minimum wage. The benefits of working off campus are a higher salary, and more working hours (you are not limited to 20 hours per week). There are a tremendous amount of employment opportunities in the community, everything from babysitting to clerical work and manual labor to food service.
Odd Jobs are temporary positions. Employers and residents contact the JLD office looking for candidates. An email is sent out to all students. Students are required to contact the employer by preferred method. These positions usually last no longer than a week although in some cases the student can make it a continued position. Odd jobs are a great way to earn quick cash.
Job Location and Development services only as a referral service and it not responsible for any problems incurred as a result of such job referral.

AVOID SCAM JOBS AND EMPLOYERS! PROTECT YOURSELF!
· Check Handshake to see if the job is in the system. If it is not, it very well could be fraudulent
· Be cautious if the email does not use a company domain
· Never give your confidential information out
· Never use your own money for business purposes
· Do not cash or deposit employer funds in your account to conduct their business
IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS!
