In addition to career advising, we offer one-on-one help in crafting your résumé, mock interviews - to get you ready for that part-time job, internship, or full-time job, and workshops on a number of career-related topics. The Career Center also brings a host of different hiring representatives from various fields: business, government, education, and social agencies to recruit at the career fairs that we host throughout the year. Many of these representatives also conduct on-campus interviews as part of their visit to campus.
If you are looking for a part-time job to help pay for school and life-related expenses, we can connect you to job openings on and off campus. We manage most of the on-campus jobs and these are posted online in our job database called Job Mine. The on-campus jobs include hourly positions NOT connected or require that you have any financial need and work-study jobs that ARE connected to your financial award.
We know that working on campus is a great way to enhance your résumé and gain meaningful work experience. If you are a UTEP student, you already have access to this database, simply activate your profile or log in now.
Here are more details on the two employment types of programs that are available in Job Mine:
- On-campus Student Employment/Hourly - These are hourly positions available within the different departments on campus. Students typically work 19 hours a week and are paid at least minimum wage. These types of positions are in NO way connected to financial aid or financial need. Students simply follow the application instructions listed in Job Mine.
- Work-study is a need-based employment program, you must have received and accepted this type of aid via your financial aid award packet. Students typically work 15-19 hours a week and typically earn minimum wage.
Having your résumé ready for a class assignment or an actual job application does not have to be stressful, simply visit the Career Center to have your résumé reviewed by one of our staff members. If you want to get an early start in drafting your résumé, take a look at our sample documents. You can also walk-in with your document in-hand, use one of our computers to begin crafting your document, or you can email your completed document to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone it will be reviewed and emailed back to you.
