On-campus employment can enhance a student’s connection to the university or college. The student employment experience allows students to embrace the school culture, form ties with people other than professors and students, and often be a part of the inner workings of the employing agency.

Statistics have shown those who work while attending college have a higher graduation rate than those who don’t. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee employs over 5500 students both on and off-campus. As you can see, UWM offers an array of opportunities for students to be a part of the student employment experience.

In collaboration with various departments on campus as well as outside agencies, UWM’s Career Development Center offers a campus job fair each semester. The job fairs connect the major hiring departments on campus like Financial Aid, UWM Police Department, Residence Life, and Auxiliary Services with the student body. These job fairs typically take place close to the start of classes. For more information on exact dates, please visit the Career Planning and Resource Center Website For your campus employment needs, you may find current openings throughout the year by visiting: uwm.joinhandshake.com or by visiting the website of the department in which you are interested. We are certain your employment experience at UWM will be life-changing.
