Employment & Career Resources

Many students enjoy the benefits of working part-time while going to school. Working part-time is a great way to assist with paying for the cost to attend college. Part-time work also helps students to improve their time management and organizational skills, while they are gaining valuable work experience. 

It must be noted that it is important for students to maintain a balance between the at work hours and the number of credits taken in a given semester.
