Employment and Internships

Jobs On and Off Campus

As an international student, one option for funding your college education is on-campus employment. Such opportunities include office assistance and support staff for various departments.  You may explore on-campus employment opportunities by using the career center website (http://www.nnu.edu/campus-life/career-center/) or by dropping by the career center in the student center.  You may also qualify for off-campus academic internships.  Internship postings can be found in the career center or by visiting your academic advisor.
