Earn while you learn
Paying for university often involves more than earning money from scholarships or borrowing from student loan programs.
Many students, both full-time and part-time, seek out employment during the school year. It's important to understand why you're seeking employment - to help pay for school, and not to allow work to overwhelm your time and hurt your studies.
The University of New Brunswick employs students during the school year as well as during the summer months to help students reduce their debt while keeping studies a top priority.
Sharpening your skills
Part-time work while you're in university is about more than just the money. It's also about valuable real-world experience that can help further your education and career goals.
Many students have the knowledge and personality to do a job, but lack the professional skills required for landing it. That's where UNB's Student Employment offices in Fredericton and Saint John come in. They can help you work on your resume and cover letter as well as teach you how to go about looking for a job and how to ace an interview.
Jobs in the community
Many part-time jobs are also available in the greater communities of Fredericton and Saint John.
Both cities have lots to offer when it comes to student jobs. There are many bars, restaurants, and local shops offering jobs to students. These are a great way to make friends and become more involved in your community.
