Erb Memorial Union (EMU) Crater Lake Rooms

Looking for a part-time job or want to learn more about work-study opportunities? Stop by the Part-Time Job & Work-Study Fair, Tuesday, Oct. 3rd, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the EMU Crater Lake Rooms to meet dozens of local and on-campus employers ready to hire today! Bring your resume and apply on the spot, or just look around and learn more about the great ways you can get work experience and build career readiness skills during your time at the UO.

FYI: Work-Study is a specific type of part-time job available to students based on financial need. If a job says it requires Work-Study, you must have accepted an award on Duckweb. To learn more about the program and how to find your award, check out https://career.uoregon.edu/jobs-and-internships/work-study

There will still be LOTS of jobs at this event that do not require work-study in order to apply--something for everyone!
