Often academic advisors, professors, and other university personnel will email students with available jobs on campus. Keep your eyes peeled for these opportunities and be sure to apply on time, with a resume reviewed by the University Career Center and The President’s Promise.
Careers4Terps (C4T) is a database of available jobs, both on and off campus, that are available to current and former UMD students.
