Jobs for Aggies:

If you are looking for a part time job, make sure to check out Jobs for Aggies. There are always new listings for departments on campus that are looking for student workers. On campus positions sponsored by TAMU are almost always open to ALL students (international and domestic). Another benefit to on campus work is that they will be flexible with your academic schedule. Off campus positions are posed here as well, but these positions will vary in their ability to hire International students.

We have had recruiters tell us that when you are starting to build your resume, demonstrating that you were able to balance work, life and school with a part time job is a good indicator of success. It also gives you a chance to build contacts, get a great work reference from someone who is currently your supervisor and gain valuable on the job skills. You don’t have to necessarily have a job that it economics related while you are in school to gain multiple benefits from it. Currently there are 148 positions posted on Jobs for Aggies.

Internships and Job Postings:

Just as a reminder, students can earn up to 6 credits (2 courses worth) of ECON 684 toward their master’s degree during any semester, however the most common time to do an internship is the summer. Major companies are currently conducting their search process for summer 2022 right now.
I encourage all students to pursue an internship as a part of their degree as it gives you hands on experience, can help you earn credit and helps you build your resume in order to make you more competitive on the job market as you get closer to graduation. Also keep in mind that internships can result in a full time job offer if the student and the company are a good match for each other. I have already seen multiple students with full time offers from their recent summer internships to confirm this. If you are an international student and have been discouraged by the lack of opportunities open to those with CPT/OPT or require sponsorship, I want to make you aware of the many opportunities that I have found that I would encourage you to apply for. This is not an exhaustive list but just a fraction of the opportunities that I found for all students. I highly encourage all students to look at these internships and also search on your own on handshake Handshake (joinhandshake.com) This is a reputable site for internships and entry level positions for students. Many of the employers that I bring in also post here as well.
