Want to gain more experience and build your CV? Then take a campus job

Campus Job – Episode 4, Campus Culture

A campus job that doesn’t affect your academic affairs can help you learn more in an industry and earn you some extra cash, Dr. Priscilla K. Mante advises. Do you have a campus job?

I’m sure you’re saying my parents send me money every week so what do I need a job on campus for? Well, getting a job on campus is not only about making some extra cash but it’s also a way to rack up some work experience and build your CV. In a world where employers expect you to have seven years working experience with software that has only been out for three years, it doesn’t hurt to have a lot of experience under your belt. Think of it as being paid to build your CV and learn how to produce under pressure. Check out the various job openings available on campus and apply for the convenient ones. Make sure it is flexible enough to not affect your academic work and progressive enough to help you improve yourself as a person. Besides, the famous rapper Lil Wayne once said, ‘too much money is not enough money,’ and if anyone should know about something like that it’s him.
