Jobs on Campus

On-campus summer and part-time opportunities are posted throughout the year by Laurier departments. Most hiring for part-time on-campus work happens during the winter term for the following academic year. Navigator is Laurier's online system for on-campus job opportunities or you can contact individual departments regarding job opportunities.

Employment Opportunities

To apply for a Teaching Assistant position, contact the academic program of interest directly.

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 Job, Volunteer and Career Expo

Each year the Career Centre co-sponsors the On-Campus Job, Volunteer and Career Expo with the Students’ Union. The fair is held in late January or early 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.

Off-Campus Opportunities

There are also hundreds of job opportunities available off campus – check Navigator regularly for off-campus part-time job postings.
