Need to Find a Job?
Searching for jobs as an undergraduate can seem like a daunting process. Let us help! There are many options for employment:
- Apply for Clark Student Employment positions. Clark Student Employment gives undergraduate students the opportunity to work in a variety of departments on campus and in surrounding community organizations. Student employment positions are designed to help students grow and succeed. In these roles, students are able to utilize their talents as well as acquire new skills that will help them prepare for life after Clark. All Clark undergrads are now eligible to apply for the majority of student employment jobs, regardless of whether they are granted a work-study award. Positions that do require a federal work-study award, like those in the Community-Based Student Employment program, will be noted as "Work study award required" in the individual job posting. The LEEP Center is now managing Student Employment postings through the Clark Recruiter database. You will log into the Clark Recruiter via your ClarkYou account. Please read the instructions carefully on how to search for current openings. In order to apply for student employment positions, you will need to submit a LEEP Center approved resume. To do this, you are required to upload a resume to your Clark Recruiter account. Please learn how to do so through the instructions provided.
- Consider community-based student employment. Opportunities are available through the Community Engagement Office. Clark University's Community-Based Student Employment Program (formerly called the community service work-study program) places students at a wide range of organizations throughout the Worcester community.
- Use Clark Recruiter. Check out the Clark Recruiter database for job, internship and volunteer opportunities. Be sure to look at current Jobs as well as the list of Employers who may be of interest to you. The Clark Recruiter database will now be located behind the ClarkYou portal for current undergraduates and 5th year students! Log into your ClarkYou account and locate the LEEP Center Clark Recruiter link on the left hand side of the page under “Web Services." Your Clark University credentials will automatically log you into your Clark Recruiter account! Non-5th year graduate students, Alumni & Employers should all log-in via our external Clark Recruiter link. GSOM & IDCE grad students & alumni have separate databases and should contact their individual Career Services offices for more info.
- Reach out directly to employers. Tailor your resume and cover letter with the help of Career Services and deliver it to employers. Stop by the LEEP Center Monday through Friday between 12 and 4 p.m. for drop-in assistance with your resume or cover letter.
- Attend on-campus fairs. The Volunteer and Internship Fair in the fall and the Career and Summer Internship Fair in the spring are a great time to connect with employers and learn about employment opportunities.
- Talk to everyone you know. Networking is simply the process of talking to people and asking them for input and advice. Your network includes family, friends, former employers, and Clark faculty, staff and alumni, among others. Don't hesitate to talk to them about your job search. The more people you talk to, the greater the chance of hearing about an interesting opportunity.
- Make an appointment with Career Services. The Career Services Office will help you develop a plan for conducting your job search and will assist you every step of the way.
