Cleveland State University Employment
Research shows that students who work on-campus:
- enjoy greater academic success,
- are more connected to the University,
- develop relationships with members of the University community who can help them deal with a variety of questions and concerns,
- have employers who support their educational endeavors and coordinate work schedules with academic schedules.
Every student position can be beneficial even if it is not significantly related to a field of study. Student positions help our students gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the working world and help them develop many of these essential job skills:
- computer skills
- communication skills
- customer service skills
Working on campus can also be helpful for funding a student’s schooling by reducing reliance on loans. The money earned in an on-campus student employment job can be used to pay for tuition, books, food, living expenses-anything a student needs.
