Your Guide to On-Campus Jobs

Posted on 6/29/2019 12:36:05 AM by Jah-Marley Fitzgerald

If you are a student who is looking for some advice and tips on getting a job on campus, you’ve come to the right place. 

Cabrini offers two types of jobs for students. There are Federal Work Study jobs and Non-Federal Work Study jobs. Federal Work-Study jobs are basically part-time jobs for students who have financial need. Typically there may be a fund on your financial aid packet that allows you to do a work-study job. 

You can only do a work-study job if you qualify. Visit or contact the Cavalier Express Center to find out if you qualify. If you don’t qualify, you can always just get a regular part-time job. 

There are tons of different on-campus jobs avaible some examples being: an office or mailroom assistant, peer tutoring, a desk job in the Dixon center, and even blogging for this Cabrini Blog platform. 

You can apply for jobs at jobs.cabrini.edu. The supervisors at Cabrini are really fast at contacting you. Typically, you will be asked to attend an interview during that week depending on the supervisor. 

For the interview, bring your resume if you have one. You don’t have to dress up in a suit and tie or a fancy dress, but make sure that you look clean and presentable. Be yourself and ask questions if you need clarification on the tasks you will be performing for the job.

Upon hiring, you will receive new hire paperwork. I would recommend getting all of it done as soon as you are given it so you can start working as soon as possible. Some of the forms that will have to be filled out would include sections for your supervisor, a Cavalier Express Center representative, and a representative from Human Resources. 

When you finally start working, you get paid bi-weekly. Don’t forget to fill out your timesheet every other Friday before 11:59 pm which will be available through your Cabrini Portal account.  

Last and foremost, I would really like to say that if you know that you can not handle a job and focus on your school work, DO NOT get a job. Wait a little bit and get your grades and time management skills to where you want them to be first. I can't stress this enough.

I hope that this information was helpful. If you need more information you can reach out to the Cavalier Express Center in Grace Hall.
