Working sans Work Study

The beautiful list of jobs available to those that qualify for Work Study is a prized possession. Postings are varied, though some jobs are more popular than others, so there is an adequate selection of employment opportunities on campus. However, the seemingly abundant pool of jobs is nowhere near enough to satisfy the pool of Work Study students and applicants. And what about those that do not qualify for Work Study? I myself have tried to apply twice in my time at McGill, outlining extenuating circumstances with no success.


Campus Jobs are the Best Jobs


When your university sits in the middle of a city, it’s easy to want to take on a million jobs. However, there are ways to weed them out. My favorite tip to give people is that the best kind of job that you can get as a student is a campus job. I know that it may be tempting to work at your favorite clothing store, your favorite cafe or the newest start up company around the corner. But remember that you’re a student and though you may not like the idea, you just don’t want work getting in the way of your studies.
