On campus jobs allow you to have the convenience of being close to work but also gaining great experiences alongside peers and professionals.Whether it’s at the library, Academic Success, Career Development, the Cap Center, or a work-study job, all serve as great places to learn about problem solving, working in a team, and many other useful skills.

4.Volunteering is great because you can volunteer for a cause you are passionate about that you may end up having a career in later! Volunteering can also give you relevant and/or transferable skills to the field you are interested in.

5. Part time jobs teach you so many valuable skills. Never underestimate even the smallest things you may learn at part time jobs. There are many useful skills that can be learned at part-time jobs, like interacting with customers, answering phones, exercising time management and more!
