Balancing class work and student organizations is already hard enough without worrying about finding a job but it’s all about finding an employer that will work around your busy schedule. Bowling Green State University has plenty of resources for you to take advantage of so you can find the right fit for you.

1. Use WorkNet.

WorkNet is BGSU’s online job posting database. Not only will you be able to view on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities, but you will be connected with somebody to help you build your resume. Having a resume that stands out and is put together well will help you find a job much quicker. You will also be matched with jobs based on your major, class standing, GPA, etc. WorkNet allows you to create a profile that will attract potential employers and sometimes employers will even reach out to you based on your profile.

2. Go to the on-campus job fairs.

Job fairs are a great place to meet with potential employers. You should always have your resume handy and an interview worthy outfit because sometimes employers will even interview you on the spot! You will be able to meet with on-campus and off-campus employers that are willing to work around your busy student schedule.

4. Visit the Student Employment Services (SES) office.

If you’re looking for an on-campus job, check out the SES office. There’s always representatives there to help you find an on-campus job that will fit in with your schedule. They are truly there to help and to answer any questions you may have about on-campus employment. They will help you to go over all of your employment options and help you decide on which is the best for you.

5. Reach out to potential employers.

Don’t wait for potential employers to contact you. Even though WorkNet allows employers to contact potential employees based off of their profile, not all choose to do that. Many employers wait for an email or phone call to know that you’re interested. There’s a lot of students on campus so don’t be afraid to be competitive for a job that you want.
