Current Students

Over 800 Pepperdine students work over the course of the academic year (the academic year is the fall and spring semester). Some students work consistently over the course of the year, averaging between eight and twelve hours a week. Other students work periodically and have secured jobs that allow them great flexibility in their work schedules.

Students at Pepperdine work on and off-campus through various job opportunities.   Students employed in on-campus job may work in an office, shelve books in the library, hold a position as a research assistant or a teaching assistant for faculty members, serve as a campus public safety officer, etc. Off-campus work is equally full of various types of jobs with students serving as babysitters, tutors, drivers, or special assistants. Off-campus work opportunities are ways to connect with the local community.

The Student Employment Office strongly advocates and encourages students to take the opportunity to work on-campus and/or off-campus to gain worthwhile job experience. Not only is this a great way to add job experience onto a resume, having a job also means earning extra income while studying in college.
