Another amazing bgsu blog
Welcome to all of the incoming freshman here at BGSU. You are in for an exciting and memorable experience. While living here in Bowling Green, finding a job might be of interest to you. Whether you need a little more money in your pocket or you have other expenses to take care of, it is important to start looking for a job early. Jobs, whether on-campus or off, can be rather competitive during certain times of the year. Starting early can give you an edge over the competition. Most places off-campus do not start hiring until the end of summer. They usually like to be prepared before the school year starts. If you can, plan a summer visit to BG and try and schedule an interview for a position downtown or anywhere surrounding the school.
As far as on-campus employment, log on to your MyBgsu student account and frequently check WorkNet. WorkNet is a great place to find on-campus as well as off-campus jobs. It is also a great resource to use when looking for an internship. One of the best resources available is the Career Center. Here, you will be able to find staff members whose main goal is to perfect your resume, teach you interviewing skills, and get you a job. There is also an amazing library available for students to use when researching career related topics. You might find some tips that are useful in your current job search as well as future ones. Also, the university has a few jobs fairs a year that you can attend. It is good to stay active in the job world because you never know what opportunities are out there for you.
