Student Employment: On & Off Campus
Did you know that Bowling Green State University offers a variety of employment options? More than 4,300 students work on-campus, while others work in the local communities or return to a job at home during break periods.
The Student Employment staff can assist you in:
- Finding a job that fits your schedule and interests.
- Exploring possible career paths.
- Landing a job after you graduate.
Students choose campus employment because of its convenience and the opportunity to work closely with faculty, staff, and other students. BGSU student employees develop work skills and employment experience, as well as earn money to pay their educational expenses. Research shows that working on campus can lead to improved academic performance. Students learn to manage their time better, gain an "insider's view" of the University, and make a real connection with other BGSU employees. Campus employment will expose you to a professional and supportive academic work environment. You'll learn and develop valuable work habits, skills, and leadership qualities that will benefit you in your career path.

Off-Campus, Part-Time, Summer, and Seasonal Student Employment
Student Employment encourages BGSU students to “try on a career” by participating in the Job Location and Development (JLD) program. JLD offers students opportunities to find off campus part-time and seasonal employment. To view off-campus (and on-campus) jobs, you must first access your WorkNet account, an on-line database accessible through your MyBGSU web portal account. Students are encouraged to attend workshops on resume building, cover letter and resume writing, and interviewing, as well as participate in career events, coaching sessions, and skill development workshops.
BGSU is committed to equal opportunity for all and does not discriminate in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities on the basis of race, sexual orientation, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, age, marital status, disability, or veteran status.
