Looking to build your resumé or gain extra spending money? Go to the Part-Time Job Fair Friday, Aug. 28, in the Student Union Ingman Room from noon to 4 p.m.
“Employers are looking for not only that degree and credentials, but for experience as well,” said Sabina Elizondo-Serratos, associate director of the Center for Experiential Learning and Career Services.
The job fair will feature various campus student employment opportunities, as well as community and campus federal work-study jobs.
“This year we are combining our community work-study job fair along with the part-time job fair,” Elizondo-Serratos said. “We are inviting community agencies and nonprofits on campus to interview our work-study students and hopefully get them connected so they can get that hands-on learning experience in the community.”
The event will feature student employment opportunities several the following campus entities:
• College of Natural Science and Mathematics;
• Department of Art;
• Department of Foreign Languages;
• Institutional Advancement;
• Jesup Scott Honors College;
• Office of Student Experience;
• Office of Student Involvement;
• Transit Services and more.
“Working on campus, you get 20 hours a week, but employers realize you’re a student so the departments will work with students’ schedules; that’s something you don’t always get off campus,” said Joshua Vail, student employment specialist in the Center for Experiential Learning and Career Services.
Community and campus federal work-study jobs opportunities include:
• Food for Thought;
• Kids Unlimited;
• MetroParks of Toledo;
• Nightingales Harvest;
• School for Autistically Impaired Learners;
• Toledo Botanical Garden;
• Toledo Campus Ministry;
• Toledo Museum of Art; and
• United Way.
“A number of our students are awarded federal work-study,” Elizondo-Serratos said. “It’s a mutually beneficial experience for both the community agencies and the students.”
Students should bring resumés and wear professional attire at the event.
Six pre-fair one-hour prep sessions are available to students Tuesday, Aug. 25. Those who qualify for federal work-study status must attend. Register here.
“We will go over interviewing tips that students should know about, resumés to make sure it’s presentable, and professional attire to make sure that students understand what that is and should be,” Elizondo-Serratos said.
