PT_Expo_RED

Tuesday, August 22, 2017
10:00 a.m. - Noon
Bradley University Renaissance Coliseum

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

 

Open to all Bradley students who are seeking paid, part-time jobs and internships. Employers will feature on-campus and off-campus jobs that students can work throughout the year. On-campus job opportunities are very competitive and limited, so students are encouraged to consider off-campus employers as well. The Student Payroll Office, Financial Services Office, International Student Services Office, and CityLink will be present during the fair to answer questions regarding work study status, payroll, visa information, and Peoria transit options. If you do not have a vehicle, look into CityLink and be open to these off-campus opportunities.

  • Log in to Bradley netWORK (use your BUnetID and password) beginning August 19 to research positions and employers
