How do I get an on-campus job?

Most on-campus jobs are posted on an online platform called Handshake, an online platform where you can browse and apply for on and off-campus jobs and internships. As a UWM student, you already are signed up for an account on Handshake.

Log onto Handshake, click UWM 1Log-in, and sign in using your e-panther ID and password. To activate your Handshake account build your profile with work history, education, awards, etc. We recommend being as detailed as possible on your profile, because you’re then more likely to match with jobs you’d be interested in.

Then you can browse all the positions that are posted and filter them to what you’re looking for. To find an on-campus part-time job, select those filters. If you find something you like, you can apply right on Handshake.

You’ll need a resume to apply for all on-campus jobs and most also require a cover letter. If you need to get started building a resume or cover letter, visit https://uwm.edu/careerplan/ and review the section application materials. A career counselor would be happy to meet with you to give you tips on improving them as well. Stop in to CPaRC during walk-in hours and bring a hard copy of your resume and/or cover letter.
