Finding a Job in the Ville

Submitted by Aislinn Goad, SSS Mentor

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!!
