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.

Check out Jobs for Aggies here You do not need to create an account to browse the jobs, but you will need to if you decide to apply.

Salary Negotiation Workshop:

Howdy!

The Texas A&M University Women’s Resource CenterCareer Center and Money Education Center invite you to attend one of our salary negotiation workshops.

According to research done by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), women working full time in the United States are typically paid just 82 percent of what men are paid. Though women now outpace men in higher education, women also hold nearly two-thirds of the outstanding student debt in the United States. Moreover, only about 7 percent of women attempt to negotiate for a higher salary in their first job, compared to 57 percent of men.

A 2016 research study from Glassdoor found that 59 percent of American employees accepted the salary they were first offered and did not negotiate.  The study further reveals that when it comes to successfully securing a higher salary, only 1 in 10 (or 10%) of U.S. employees report negotiating their salary and getting more money in their current or most recent job.

To ensure that all Texas A&M students are prepared to negotiate a fair salary upon graduation, we are offering AAUW Start Smart and AAUW Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshops. Due to health and safety concerns, all summer workshops will be delivered via Zoom. Participants will receive the Zoom link and password once they have registered for the workshop. There will be both in person and Zoom options in the fall.

AAUW Start Smart and AAUW Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshops teach participants how to negotiate for a fair salary. In every two-and-a-half-hour workshop, participants gain confidence in their negotiation styles through facilitated discussion and role-play, and learn:

  1. How to identify and articulate their personal value.
  2. How to develop an arsenal of persuasive responses and other negotiation strategies.
  3. How to conduct objective market research to benchmark a target salary and benefits.
  4. Information on the wage gap, including its long-term consequences.

The AAUW Start Smart Workshop is ideal for students who are preparing to enter the professional job force for the first time. In addition to the skills listed above, students learn how to research the cost of living in the location where they plan to live and how to build a basic budget, which informs their salary ask.

Start Smart Workshops:

  • Tuesday, July 13 | 5:30 –  8 p.m. | Zoom
  • Monday, September 20 | 5:30 –  8 p.m. | Zoom
  • Tuesday, October 19 | 5:30 – 8 p.m. | In-person
  • Monday, November 15 | 5:30 –  8 p.m. | Zoom

The AAUW Work Smart Workshop is better suited to students who may have already been in the workforce and have experience with personal budgeting. This workshop dives deeper into salary negotiation, including how to negotiate raises with your supervisor.

We recommend that students choose to attend an AAUW Start Smart Workshop or an AAUW Work Smart Workshop three to four months before they plan to start their post-graduate job search. Each workshop is limited to 20 participants. Pre-registration is required. All Texas A&M University students are welcome to attend AAUW Smart Start and AAUW Work Smart Workshops regardless of gender identity.

Work Smart Workshops:

  • Tuesday, September 28 | 5:30 –  8 p.m. | Zoom
  • Wednesday, October 27 | 5:30 – 8 p.m. | In-person
  • Wednesday, November 17 | 5:30 –  8 p.m. | Zoom

Direct questions or concerns about AAUW Start Smart or AAUW Work Smart Workshops via email to the Women’s Resource Center or call 979.845.8784.
