Though it may seem like there aren’t many available jobs in this small town, Northwest offers many resources to help find a job. Whether you need money to pay for tuition, a little extra cash, or a position to help pad your résumé, here are some sites to aid you in your search:
- http://www.nwmissouri.edu/hr/student/index.htm - The Northwest website has a Student Employment page. Just click on “Job Postings” and scroll through the list of available positions. Most will have a description of the job and a due date, with an attached application. Just fill one out as needed and follow the directions about turning it in. Make sure to click on “Non-University Employment” as well, as there are sometimes postings for positions such as babysitters.
- http://www.campusdish.com/en-US/CSMW/NorthwestMissouri/ContactUs/ - Campus Dining has a separate website with job postings for jobs at places on campus such as the Food Court or Freshens. Just click on “Employment” and fill out an application!
- http://www.nwmissouri.edu/careerserv/HABinfo.htm - Career Services is a great resource, and has a program called “Hire A Bearcat.” This is a place where Northwest students can look for jobs and internships. You can upload a résumé and look at lots of current openings.
- There are also many resources online such as www.monster.com and http://www.maryvilledailyforum.com/ (The Maryville newspaper) where you can search for positions in the area.
Good luck on your search!!
