On Campus Jobs
When to look
- August, December and April are the best times to job hunt on campus.
- If possible, begin your search before the start of a semester, as most college departments will want you trained and
ready to go when the semester starts.
Where to look
Students can find part-time, summer and on-campus jobs on SenecaWorks.
