Part-Time Employment Expo Information for Students

Bradley University Renaissance Coliseum

Bring your Bradley ID!  Registration begins at 9:45 a.m.


Come to meet on-campus and off-campus employers and interview on the spot!  Please note that on-campus positions are very limited, so prepare and dress well to stand out among other candidates.  Many off-campus employers can be reached on the Peoria bus line; if you do not have a vehicle, look into CityLink and be open to these off-campus opportunities.

How to Prepare BEFORE the Expo:

  • List of employers and event map.
  • To view details of the job listings:  (available August 20, 2016)
    • Log in to Bradley netWORK (use your BUnetID and password)
    • Update your profile with the required information
    • Click on “Fairs, Events & Workshops” and then click on “2016 Part-Time Employment Expo”
    • Using the link titled “View Employers Attending”, you can:
      • Review the employers who will be in attendance
      • Click on an employer and view positions for which they will be hiring at the Expo

On the DAY OF the Expo:

  • Bring your Bradley University ID card.
  • Bring your class schedule and a pen.
  • Bring a few copies of the Student Contact Information Form. This may save you time at the Part-Time Employment Expo.
  • Dress neatly; first impressions count! Dressing in business casual attire will give a great first impression and help you stand out.
  • Know which employers will be in attendance and what jobs they are advertising.
  • Keep an open mind. Speak with at least 5 employers (10 is even better). There are many applicants and speaking to more employers will increase your success rate for finding employment.
  • Some off-campus employers prefer to see your resume. If you have one, bring several copies of your Resume.  Click here to schedule a phone appointment with David Schwartz to strengthen your resume.

What is Federal Work-Study and am I eligible?

The Federal Work-Study Program provides federally-funded opportunities for on-campus jobs for undergraduate and graduate students. Eligible students are determined by the FAFSA.  More questions about Federal Work Study? Contact Student Financial Services 

Are there on-campus jobs available for students without Work-Study?

Yes, we will signify at the Part-Time Expo which jobs are only for Work-Study students and which jobs are available for all Bradley students.
