Texas A&M Part Time Jobs For Students
University students need to earn money to fund their education. Thrifty spending, ramen diets, missed meals, poor nutrition, and life of strife are the poster child of a struggling university student.
This has morphed into the broke student stereotypes that paint struggling through university as a rite of passage.
Research shows almost half the student population in the US often goes hungry to make ends meet. Unfortunately, food insecurity affects students’ physical and mental wellbeing, leading to poor academic performance.
Traditionally, students were restricted to menial, low-pay jobs such as flipping burgers, waiting tables, or bartending. Not anymore. Today, current students have a chance of breaking the broke student troupe by securing prestigious, lucrative jobs that accelerate their careers.
Texas A&M University Student Jobs
The university provides regular part-time employment for graduate and undergraduate students through the Student Employment Office. The university lists all open positions on the Jobs for Aggies Job Board.
The university’s career services office covers both on-and off-campus job opportunities. But you seek out on-campus jobs by visiting the relevant departments and offices.
Naturally, the on-campus job opportunities are open to current students. Undergraduate and graduate students can create a profile on the job board to view the available options. On-campus student employees work an average of 10 to 20 hours a week and are paid bi-weekly. Some of the open on-campus part-time positions on the JFA Job Board include:
- Student Assistant
- Student Technician (IDSS)
- Student Assistant (Engineering)
- Gateway Peer mentor
- Student GIS Assistant Tech (Architecture)
The off-campus job opportunities come from nearby firms and businesses. While jobs are listed on the JFA Job Board, the university doesn’t guarantee off-campus employment. It would be best if you carried out your due diligence on the company, negotiated your wages, hours, and more on your own.
The Battalion Job Listings
The Battalion, also known as The Batt, is the Texas A&M University student newspaper. The weekly newspaper is published on Thursdays during the spring and fall semesters and on New Student Conference days during summer. Graduate students can access the online version of the student newspaper on thebatt.com.
The classified section of the student newspaper routinely publishes job available job opportunities. There are a variety of positions published in the student newspaper and listed online by local businesses looking to hire university students. You’re likely to find jobs openings in nearby restaurants, car washes, groceries, and more.
Part-Time Remote Jobs
Today, getting a remote, part-time job is easier than ever. With the ongoing pandemic driving most companies to embrace telecommuting, plenty of part-time positions are available. You can capitalize on this development to improve your financial status. For the most part, you only need a laptop and internet connection to start working remotely.
Most companies provide comprehensive onboarding skills for their new hires, but you can also capitalize on your existing skills, hobbies, or your field of study. Remote, part-time jobs have become mainstream, and reputable companies often list their openings on major job sites such as Indeed and LinkedIn.
Alternatively, you can find remote working opportunities on freelance job sites such as Upwork, Guru, Freelancer, Fiverr, and more. You can easily make $15 an hour as a freelancer on these platforms while working on projects that foster your professional development. That’s way better than flipping burgers for a measly $9 an hour at a local fast-food joint.
Online freelancing positions are available to undergraduate and graduate students looking to earn extra bucks during their downtime. You can use these platforms to launch a successful career. You can gain valuable experience solving real-world problems for your clients and getting paid handsomely for your efforts.
