Jobs in University

A photo of moodeline moodeline
So I'm wondering if anyone has any advice regarding working part time in university. I don't work during school in high school, but I'm super involved in extra-curriculars, and take full IB. Will it be possible to get exceptional grades, participate (somewhat) in extra-curriculars and have a social life as well as working?

Part B: I'm from the West coast, and work as a lifeguard during the summer. I was thinking that this would be a good job to work at a few shifts a week while in university. Can anyone recommend to me any pools around U of T (obviously I'm aware of the ones actually on campus). Thanks:)

I'm planning to do weekends and probably Friday evenings. This way I'll get around 20 hours, not the 30 that I'm getting now, but it will still help.

Working Fridays is okay, because there isn't school the next day, and on the weekends if you work there is still time for study and play.

You sound fairly well disciplined already, so working and studying shouldn't be an issue.

Yes, you should and need to work. Even if you find something easy and part time working at a fast food joint, you'll be good.

I would say at least a few weeks to a month in advance, since they need time to look through your resume/application.. set up an interview date.. do the actual interview.. as well as conduct other interviews with other potential employees.. then get back to you.

[size=6]There are tons of part time jobs that are flexible and fun!

I've had a few doing on-campus marketing throughout my 3 years at uOttawa and I love it! It's fun, you meet great people, and get paid.

There's a great one with James Ready Beer for Sept 2011. If you've ever wanted to work for a beer company, you should check it out! They're hiring a student from 8 universities to become campus diplomats. Just fill in the application at: JamesReadyJob.com

Participating campuses:

•University of Western Ontario
•York University
•University of Guelph
•Queen’s University
•University of Ottawa
•McMaster University
•Brock University
•Wilfrid Laurier University[/size]
