  • Check with your school’s career development, student’s employment office or website for open on-campus job positions.
  • Utilise networking. Ask your friends, lecturers, seniors etc. whether they know of any open on-campus job position.
  • Post ads in public places or websites showing what job or service you are ready to render on campus for some cash.
  • Sign up for any volunteering opportunity in Student life office or any office on campus. Volunteering can give you an opportunity to meet the bosses at various sectors of the university which can be a good opportunity to ask for any paid job position on campus.
