It doesn’t matter what your major is or what year you are in; getting a part-time job can really benefit your future. Having a job prepares you for the professional atmosphere of life after university: you gain useful skills in networking, organization and work ethic, not to mention a few extra dollars to hide under the mattress. But as a student, the free time we have comes sporadically and it isn’t often conducive to part-time work. This is why Brock has a wealth of on-campus jobs that can fit into your schedule without stretching you too thin. Various departments around campus will be hiring for the 2015/2016 school year up until the end of March.
Recreation Services is a great place to find both a job and a healthy lifestyle. The largely student-run department is dedicated to safe and inclusive fitness opportunities and they help organize and maintain things like intramural sports and the Zone. If you are passionate about physical health and being active, working for recreation services may be for you. Positions are being filled for the 2015/2016 year that include personal trainers, lifeguards/instructors, intramural staff, equipment room staff, fitness/spin instructors, welcome desk staff, Children’s Movement staff and PALS/Sports School Spring/Summer staff. The deadline to apply is Jan. 31 and applicants should bring their resumes to the welcome desk inside Walker Complex.

If you feel comfortable in a suit and tie, the HRMA is hiring executive members for their 2015/2016 year.
