Working on campus is a great way to make money, build your résumé, and get involved in the Tulane community. Just be sure not to overload your schedule or overwork yourself! Factor in things like studying, eating, sleeping, and free time - they are all essential and non-negotiable. In a bind? Reach out to resources like the Center for Academic Equity for help.
COLLEGE CENTRAL NETWORK
College Central Network gives users the ability to search for jobs exclusive to Tulane students. Positions posted include both on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities. Visit collegecentral.com/tulane.
Handshake is designed to bring Tulane job seekers and prospective employers together. Students and alumni can upload résumés, search for jobs and internships, apply for positions, register for special employer and career events, and manage an online profile viewable by employers.
FEDERAL WORK STUDY
If you have been awarded work study as part of your financial aid, you can apply for work study jobs on campus - instead of being applied directly to your tuition and fees, your paycheck will go into your bank account.
Students who have not been awarded federal work study are encouraged to apply to non-work study positions.
If you are hired, you will need to provide identification and fill out an I-9 form. Check out the list of accepted documents and if you have a passport, consider bringing it with you to campus just in case.
WORKING OFF CAMPUS
Many students find employment off campus as well. If you do, just remember to factor in transportation costs and time.
Having trouble finding work? Ask upperclassmen for advice! They will know when positions might open and can give suggestions for résumés and interviews.
