Part-time Jobs


Jobs On Campus

All jobs on campus are advertised through the Office of Human Resources. Click here to review open positions and submit your application.

When applying for a campus position, these tips may help you stand out as a top candidate:

  • Thoroughly complete the online application form with details about your skills and work experience. Research the department on campus (check the web site) and provide a strong rationale for why you want to work there and what you can offer. Be sure to proofread your application before submitting it!
  • Submit all additional materials requested. Some supervisors may ask for a resume or references to consider you for the position. Applicants who skip this step may not be considered.
  • Follow-up by emailing or visiting the supervisor for the position. Find out more about the job, describe how you can meet his/her needs and inquire about any next steps.
  • After talking, meeting or interviewing with the supervisor, send him/her a thank you email or letter.
  • Apply for several positions to pursue all opportunities for which you are qualified and interested.

Safety Precautions

Manchester University does not endorse any employer and urges students to use good judgment in all of their interactions with employers. OCS suggests that students request business references for unknown organizations before interviewing with them off campus or exploring job opportunities. Students should never give a potential employer their credit card or bank account numbers, and never spend any of their own money on an employment “opportunity” unless very certain that it is for a legitimate reason (such as training costs).  Students should clarify requests for social security numbers to ensure the safety of their identity; in most cases a social security number is not necessary until the point of employment or for background checks in certain fields.  The OCS staff advises students to interview in legitimate business settings only.
