Students of Color Perspectives: Guide to On-Campus Jobs


Hi there! I’m Laura Muñoz, a Freshman from Miami. I’m your Students of Color Perspectives blogger and I’ll write about what it means to be a proud (First-Gen, Feminist) Cubanita here at Brown (the best school on Earth).

If you’re interested in doing work-study during your time at Brown, there are lots of options available for the types of jobs you could have and how to go about finding them. Here’s my easy guide for tackling work-study at Brown!

Finding a Job:

The easiest way to find a job is to check listings on the Student Employment website, where all job listings are required to be posted. Community members will often post about positions in the “Off-Campus Job” category, which often includes things like babysitting, tutoring, or coaching children’s sports teams. You can even sign up for Job Mail and select which categories of jobs you are interested in so every time a position is open in the department/category you’re looking into, you’ll get an email informing you about it. Job Mail is definitely the easiest way to find a job!

Types of On-Campus Jobs Available:

If you’re looking for a job, good luck! If you can’t find one right away, don’t be discouraged, stay positive and keep looking, because this can soon be you:
