Find work on campus at Highline's student job fair
By Peter Brooks - Staff Reporter
Students interested in working at the same place they go to school can get hired next week.
The Student Employee On-Campus Job Fair will be at Highline on Tuesday, April 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event will be in Building 8, on the bottom floor in the Mt. Constance and Mt. Olympus rooms.
"Be prepared to find your dream job," said Chantal Carrancho, program manager of the Career and Student Employment at Highline.
"Student employment is convenient, flexible, and may turn into a full-time job," she said.
Departments at Highline that will be hiring include the Center for Leadership and Service; Multicultural Affairs; International Student Programs, and Outreach Services.
There are more departments that are unconfirmed at this time.
Carrancho said there are around 500 student employees, so it is very competitive.
Be prepared to dress business-casual and bring many copies of your resume, and leave a good first impression, she said.
Business-casual means to dress appropriate for the job. Clean, ironed clothes, with no holes or tears, and no sneakers, she said.
Jeans are potentially fine depending on the overall outfit, said Carrancho.
"Try again in the summer job fair if it doesn't work out. It's still a good learning experience," she said.
Students can also attend the Center for Leadership and Service at Highline for help with resumes and cover letters.
Students can also recieve advice for getting a job as well, particularly on-campus.
The Center for Leadership and Service is located in Building 6, room 214, in the upper floor lobby.
