College is expensive. Between paying interest on student loans and living in an apartment next year, my expenses are going to add up fast. Some don’t need a job while in college, but for the majority of us a job is a necessity.
I already have a job lined up for the fall (and technically the spring too), but there’s a chance I’m going to need a second job as well.
Here are a few ways to find a job while in college:
HireaHawk is perfect because each Iowa student already has an account set up for them, and it’s free. You can upload your resume (and get tips!), check out recommended jobs and internships, search and apply, and so much more. It seems like there are new postings almost every day.
Look for “hiring” or “help wanted” signs around town
While eating at Buffalo Wild Wings a couple weeks ago, I noticed a “hiring” sign on the door. Upon further investigation, I noticed that quite a few places in and around the downtown area had similar signs.
Ask around (or get lucky)
It never hurts to ask around. Maybe someone has heard about an opening that would be perfect for you, or can at least lead you in the right direction.
I actually got really lucky when it came to finding out about the student video assistant job with the Iowa Hawkeye football team. The head coach for my high school’s football team heard they were hiring and immediately told me about it.
Thank you for reading! Be sure to keep an eye out for my next post. If you’d like to see more of my everyday life as an Iowa student, feel free to follow me on social media! Go Hawks!
