On Campus Jobs

Many students prefer to work on campus and there are a variety of positions available - from research assistant work to food service and administrative roles. On-campus work and volunteering is also a great way to build connections and community. Here are the main websites that list on-campus job opportunities:

  1. UM CONNECT posts on-campus and off-campus jobs and volunteer opportunities for students. Register to view postings.
  2. University of Manitoba Human Resources posts jobs of all kinds. Student jobs are typically posted within “Student" or "Unionized Support Staff" categories.
  3. UMSU hires students to work for their office, as well as Degrees Restaurant, VWs Social Club, G.P.A.'s Convenience Store and I.Q’s Cafe & Billiards. Check their social media feeds for opportunities (InstagramFacebookTwitter) or email UMSU to inquire.
  4. Bison Sports, Recreation Services & Mini U hires students to work at sporting events, with Mini U Programs, and at the Active Living Centre and other recreation facilities
  5. Work-Study Program hires students with documented financial need (see the website for eligibility details). Recruitment typically spans from mid-August to early September each year.

Don't forget to access the "hidden job market" - positions that are not advertised and are instead filled through networking. Here are some ideas:

  • Talk to professors! They often hire students whom they are familiar with as grader/markers, teaching assistants, or research assistants.
  • Private businesses and food service areas located on-campus are other potential sources of jobs at the University of Manitoba. Some units and departments prefer to hire through word of mouth. If you're interested in finding out more about these opportunities, visit the employer directly. Pembina Hall, Conference & Catering, and the Campus Day Care are some other examples of places that may have part-time employment opportunities.

When you're connecting with employers take along a tailored resumé that you created specifically with that job in mind and offer to leave a copy with them.

Undergraduate Research Awards also provide opportunity for students to gain experience on campus. 

Career Services offers many job search preparation resources such as workshops and online workbooks. Students are also invited to meet with a Career Consultant for further support.

Industry Associations & Employer Directories

Sector councils and industry associations are excellent resources for industry specific information. These provide everything from labour market reports to job postings to networking opportunities. You might also find a directory of organizations and companies in the field, which is a great starting point for any job search. More than one association or council might apply to you depending on your interests: consider getting a student membership to reap the greatest benefits.

Your specific occupation of interest might also have its own professional association. A list of these and additional industry sector councils and directories will be listed within the specific pages in our Exploring Occupations online library. You may also wish to do a Google search to discover other relevant associations, societies and councils, including those that align with the region where you wish to work.

Note: that this list is not exhaustive. It also includes directories provided by organizations other than sector councils. These are included here as additional resources to support students as they continue to identify potential employers and increase their industry knowledge.
