Take full advantage of your experience working on- campus! Many skills you learn and experiences you have will be applied to your future jobs. For example, any job on-campus will help in your career development. It will help you assess if a similar job or a job in a related field is right for you. Another example is related to diversity. Working in a diverse environment can teach you about teamwork and cross-cultural collaboration. You’ll learn how to build strong interpersonal skills in a supportive, respectful environment. Successful students know how important these transferable skills are to any job search, so be sure to continually make the connection between your on-campus job and long-term employment.
