Laurier Work Study Program
Laurier Work Study Program (LWSP) postings are available each year for qualifying students in financial need and are posted in September. Program eligibility is assessed by Student Awards; you must be approved to participate in LWSP before applying to LWSP positions.
International Student Work Experience Program
The International Student Work Experience Program (ISWEP) is available to undergraduate international students who meet the eligibility criteria. ISWEP is intended to create part-time, meaningful employment opportunities for international students to assist them in their career development. Demonstrating financial need is not a requirement. Program eligibility is assessed by staff at the Career Development Centre; you must be approved to participate in ISWEP before applying to ISWEP positions.
On-Campus Student Employment and Volunteer Fair
Each year the Career Centre co-sponsors the On-Campus Student Employment and Volunteer Fair with the Students’ Union and Human Resources. The fair has historically been held in February and is an opportunity for departments to showcase their part-time, summer, and volunteer opportunities for the upcoming terms. This is a great time to research both paid and volunteer opportunities for future academic years.
There are also hundreds of job opportunities available off campus – check Navigator regularly for off-campus part-time job postings.
