From time to time departments on campus have a need for extra help. The Federal Government and UNOH fund a program where we hire students to work on campus as long as they meet certain criteria. Those criteria include: must be a full time student, must keep a 2.0 or higher GPA (if it falls below, they are subject to termination), and must file a FAFSA with Financial Aid. Not everyone who applies for Work Study will be eligible, but those who are need only to fill out one application for all positions available. There will not always be positions readily available, when positions open up they will be posted on Career Magnet and on the campus job boards. The departments who interview and hire look at availability, class schedules, and attendance when considering employees. Since these are UNOH positions, we look for those who are willing to work. These positions pay minimum wage and are limited to working a maximum of 25 hours per week. You can pick up an application in Career Services, located in the 200 Building/Student Services.
There are many ways you can prepare yourself before graduating and pursuing your chosen career path. One, you can stop by one of our many Career Services Success Seminars which are held at various times on campus throughout each quarter/session. Two, you can contact Career Services to schedule a one-on-one session with one of the Directors to assist you with your career needs. Three, you can register yourself on Career Magnet and upload your resume for easy searching and employer contact. Just make sure you stop by Career Services.
