For many students, the reality is that they need to work while they are going to college to help make ends meet. We get it, and we are here to help you prepare for and land a job that will help finish your studies and achieve your ultimate goals. Check out the resources below to see where we can help!
WANT TO WORK ON CAMPUS?
There are benefits to working on campus, since it can be easier to balance your work and studies if you are on campus the entire time. Here’s how to find on-campus jobs:
Student Federal Work-Study Program
If you are eligible for financial aid, you might also be eligible for the federal work-study program. Not only does the federal work-study program provide on-campus jobs for students, but your earnings in these jobs doesn’t impact the amount of financial aid you can receive like other jobs do. And you can gain work experience in your major—it’s a win-win! If you are enrolled in or planning to take at least 6 units, click here to learn more.
On-Campus Student Jobs
Many departments on campus hire student workers up to 20 hours a week to support their programs and services. You can search and apply for on-campus jobs by using the LBCC online job bank at https://careers.lbcc.edu/students/Login.cfm or you can visit the LBCC Career Center located at LAC A-1097 or PCC EE-105.
