Work It Out

OK, so you’ve made it through your first (or maybe your seventh) semester at Christopher Newport. What’s up for spring semester besides maybe some snow, more basketball games and brand-new classes? If you’re interested, you can look for a job working right here at CNU!

Need some extra cash? Want to start building a resume? Our university offers us tons of ways to work on campus with opportunities for all kinds of positions. Here’s a quick selection of some of the jobs available:

  1. Tour guide. Do you have a passion for meeting new people, working as a member of a team, and communicating the vision and personality of Christopher Newport to others? This job just might be a great fit for you! Tour guides work with the Office of Admission to showcase campus to prospective students and their families, and you can often spot them walking backwards across the Plaza surrounded by some future Captains.
  2. Einstein’s barista. Are you a quick-thinker with great customer service skills and a willingness to learn the ins and outs of the Einstein’s menu? If so, you should look into applying for a barista job at Einstein’s! You’ll get face time with most of the student body and, sometimes, President Trible (!!!) while you serve up all kinds of drinks and snacks.
  3.  Blogger. That’s the job that produces what you’re reading! Do you enjoy expressing yourself through writing and sharing about your everyday experiences on campus? Then, look out for open blogging positions with the Office of Communications and Public Relations and get your fun writing sample ready!

Interested in swiping cards in the dining halls, sorting mail in the University’s mail room, or helping fellow students with IT issues? There’s a multitude of positions for students to fill! The Center for Career Planning is here to help you land that perfect campus job.
