The most important resource that LMU students will use when trying to find employment is LionJobs. This online database allows students to explore work study, part-time and seasonal job opportunities, both on-campus and off-campus. Watch the "Intro to LionJobs" video below to learn more about how to apply to job postings.
MyTime is LMU's electronic online timecard/payroll system used for entering daily hours worked and submitting bi-weekly timesheets.
Work study is the largest source of part-time employment for students at LMU. It is awarded to students based on need and is offered in their Financial Aid package. Many departments throughout the University hire students to assist with their daily operations. We also offer two off-campus work study programs: Lions for Learning and the LMU Partners Program.
However, if you did not receive work study funds LMU still has many opportunities for student employment both on campus and off!
Watch the "Work Study and T-Work" video below to find out what type of work fits your needs!
Finding a Job
What can I do with federal work-study funds?
Here are some options:
Register and create a profile on LionJobs. Once you have registered, you can upload a resume, search for work study jobs, and apply directly through the LionJobs system.
Learn about Lions for Learning: a program which employs LMU work study student tutors to assist with in-class and after school programs at a variety of elementary schools in and around the Westchester/Los Angeles area. Students get the hands on experience that a school environment provides, as well as the opportunity to develop professional and social skills in a diverse setting while building strong community ties.
LMU Partners Program: students get the opportunity to work off campus with contracted non-profit organizations in the Los Angeles area. This program offers a wide variety of job opportunities ranging from tutoring students in math and reading to administering after school arts programs to working at a non-profit devoted to bringing the latest in active technology to children and adults living with disabilities.
I don't have work-study. Can I still work on campus?
Some departments such as Housing and the School of Film and Television hire students who are not work study eligible. These positions can be found on LionJobs.
LMU also has vendors on campus who hire students without work study. Vendors include Sodexo, Jamba Juice, and The Coffee Bean- also found on LionJobs.
What are my options for part-time work outside of LMU?
There is so much you can explore!
The best tool to use to find off campus employment is LionJobs. Local employers regularly post seasonal and part-time opportunities.
Additionally, you can utilize LMU's Job Location and Development (JLD) Program to receive assistance finding a job that fits your interests and schedule. Typically, the positions are part-time, and are not affiliated with LMU. JLD job positions are open to all students - whether or not you have work study funds! Please contact Amie Gonzalez to set up an appointment.
Finally, check out the Community Connections Job Board to find part-time childcare/tutoring/personal assistant and freelance work.
