Living off-campus may require you to work to help pay for expenses like transportation, food, and utilities.
Working while in school can also help in learning time management skills and in building skills and experience to add to a resume.
If you are needing or wanting to work while at JMU, there are work opportunities both on and off campus.
The Student Work Experience Center (SWEC) is a JMU resource that helps students find and succeed in both on and off campus employment. Their website has links to JMU Joblink where you can search for student jobs on campus and links to posting for available summer or part time off campus employment.
Additional questions regarding student job opportunities can be addressed by visiting the Student Work Experience Center on the 5th Floor of the Student Success Center.
