Q. When and how do I find a job?
A. Available jobs are posted online the third week in August. You may go to the Student Employment Postings (accessed through CamelWeb) and use the search engines to find on campus jobs based on the type of employment you are eligible for. Once you find a job that interests you, contact the supervisor listed to set up an interview. We also strongly recommend you to contact any department that you may have an interest on to see if they have any openings available that are not advertised with our office.
Q. I am an international student. What work opportunities are there for me?
A. Please read the International Student Frequently Asked Questions, which will answer all your questions about finding work at Connecticut College. Once you are here, you will have access to the International Students Campus Employment Handbook.
Q. What if I can't find a job?
A. Please keep looking. Positions decrease rapidly as the fall semester progresses but there are always available jobs. There is a difference between no available jobs and wanting the absolutely perfect job. If you have specific time demands (such as odd class hours or practice/games), you may need to look a bit harder and perhaps broaden your search to include positions that will accommodate these demands on your time. There are jobs on this campus such as Dining Services that are willing to accommodate your schedule. Dining Services is one of the highest paying and most flexible jobs on campus. We strongly recommend to contact any department that you may have an interest on to see if they have any openings available that is not advertised with our office. Also, watch the Daily CONNtact student daily newsletter for job opportunities.
