Working on campus sometimes allows you to set your own hours. Most campus employers insist you keep your schoolwork first at all times.
Jobs are out there for Tech students. Working on campus is another way to prepare for life after college. Your prospective employers will appreciate your experience. Like most college students these days, Tech students help pay their own way through college in a number of ways.
Some of the students in Journalism at Tech are currently employed on campus as resident advisers, newspaper editors, computer center helpdesk workers and magazine editors. Others work in departmental offices, in the cafeteria, grill, deli and library. Many students work off-campus in restaurants, retail stores and businesses.
