Top 10 Jobs on Campus
Campus Tour Guide
However, this gig isn't all fun and games. RAs often encounter difficult situations over the course of a semester, such as dealing with underage drinking and disgruntled residents. Candidates for this job need a thick skin and good people skills, and need to be prepared to deal with tough situations.
Job duties include greeting alumni, guiding alumni on tours, and making sure alumni have everything they need for the weekend (or the duration of the reunion).
Students who apply for a job like this should have good people skills, and should be organized and reliable.
On-Campus Daycare Center
Successful applicants for a job in the daycare center usually have some childcare experience. This can also be a great on-campus job for someone majoring in child development, or for anyone looking to become a teacher.
Here's how it works. Many students need help taking notes during class due to a disability that keeps them from writing, hearing, or seeing well. This can be due to a short-term disability, such as a broken arm, or a lifelong disability such as impaired hearing or vision. The disability office pays other students to take good notes for the disabled students to use.
Anyone who takes this job must be reliable, as well as a good note taker, and must show up for every class. But the perks of this job are endless. There are no nights or weekends involved, and the student can take on as much or as little work as he desires -- not to mention he'll have some great notes that he can use, as well!
