Part time jobs near campus to pad your resumé and bank account

Mackenzie Walker

Vancouver is one of the most expensive cities in the world to live in, and it can be a real struggle to live here especially if you are an undergraduate student. You’re battling the never-ending rain, tuition, rent, transit debacles, rain, school and rain. It can be especially challenging if you are living away from home for the first time.

If you are searching for a part-time job this summer near or on campus, I highly recommend looking up UBC CareersOnline or Service Canada Job Bank.
