In addition to instructional associate positions, there are also hourly jobs available in Newhouse. These positions include research, teaching support and administration. Information and applications are distributed over the summer, at the beginning of each semester or as jobs open up.
Various positions are also available throughout the University. The listing is available on JOBNET, through the SU's Student Employment Office.
The majority of our students hold at least one part-time job. Many work at Newhouse or in other areas on campus. Most recommend working 10-15 hours a week, but nothing more. Also, it's nearly impossible to work during the summer due to the intense class schedule.
Newhouse has its own Career Development Center (CDC) dedicated to helping our enrolled students and alumni conduct a self-directed, proactive job and/or internship search. Because the communications industry is unlike other industries regarding hiring practices, the CDC will help prepare you to be job-ready by the time you graduate. The CDC provides career guides, industry trade magazines and directories, and the Newhouse Network, an alumni database of more than 5,000 former Newhouse students who have agreed to offer career advice to students and other alumni.
The CDC also provides students with job and internship listings, resume critiquing and job hunt seminars. Frequent updates on CDC activities and job and internship opportunities are sent to all Newhouse students, and the CDC also organizes a fall Communications Internship Fair and a spring Central New York Communications Consortium, which includes five Central New York schools.
We strongly encourage all students to take advantage of the CDC for help with resume writing, interviewing etiquette, job-hunting skills or whatever questions you may have about your job search. Get to know the staff. Begin early. Since you only have a year here, it pays to plan ahead.
