Part-Time + Summer Jobs

Need to earn money?  Want to develop skills like communication, teamwork and time management?  If you answered yes to any of these, you are in the right place! Whether you want to work on-campus or off, part-time jobs help build skills employers are looking for.

  • At MSU more than 17,000 students work on-campus each year in close to 300 departments.
  • Working allows you to learn to use your time effectively, develop workplace skills, and gain experience.
  • Studies indicate that students who work while in school do as well, or better academically, as students who do not work. 
  • Developing a work history will make you more attractive to employers after graduation!
