How to Search for Jobs and Opportunities

Hover over Jobs & Opportunities and then click on Job Search

All active jobs will show up. To narrow your search, for example to look for Student Employment positions (local, part-time opportunities with flexible hours), click on the arrow in the “Position Type” box and select “Student Employment/Part-time”, click “Close” and “Search”.

To search by more specific criteria, i.e.) searching jobs that are specifically targeting your major, Click “Advanced Search” and choose any criteria you wish, but remember it will narrow down the amount of employment opportunities to view.

To see the job and all the details associated with it, click on the Job Title or Job Number.

Note: Be careful of getting too specific in the search categories. If you aren’t getting the number of results you think you should be, put in fewer criteria, especially under “Classification”, “Job Location” and “Wage/Salary”.
