Tips for finding a job off-campus

Include Your Resume

  • Keep your resume updated and attach it to job applications. Sometimes your resume will show an employer something more that could help you get the job. 

Search for a Job

  • WWU's Job Scene has off-campus jobs listed, but not all businesses list their job openings with us. Check out the off-campus section for current openings we are aware of.

Places to Look for Off-Campus Jobs

  • Contact some local businesses, like Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen or Andy’s Market, to see if they are hiring, or do an online search


  • Follow application instructions for each business and attach your resume. Follow up with employers to show interest.
