Earn while you learn

Are you looking for a part-time job during your time at VCU? You are not alone. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2011 the majority of undergraduate college students in the U.S. (actually 72 percent, if you’re into statistics) worked during the academic year. VCU students are no different — many of you will work while attending school and gain real-world experience to pair with your education.

Finding the right opportunity takes time, research, quality career documents, interviewing skills, organization and dedication. Luckily, VCU Career Services has a variety of resources to help in your search for that next opportunity — and dedicated career advisors who can guide you every step of the way.

It’s never too early to begin planning and an intentional and successful job search plan can take months to implement from the initial research phase to application to interviews to the job offer. Get a jump-start on your planning with the resources available to you through VCU Career Services.
