Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find part-time jobs while I'm going to school and full-time jobs for summer and when I graduate?
The Job Center is located on the 3rd floor of the Parks building. A variety of jobs are received by this office each week.
Where can I obtain assistance on my resume, interview, and job search?
The Job Center is open on Mondays from 8am-6:30pm, and Tuesday-Friday 8am-4:30pm. You may drop in at these times or you may also make an appointment for a 15-20 minute resume critique after you have developed a rough draft. (Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 times to get the resume that will market you the best.)
What is the best way to meet potential employers for different careers?
The Job Center is pleased to host a program called Employers on Campus. During the quarter employers showcase their business by having a display table with a recruiter available to answer questions. These are held in Graywolf Hall. Another good way is to attend the Snohomish County Job Fair that is held at the EvCC campus twice a year. These fairs draw many businesses of all types including: Aerospace, Telecommunications, Medical, Social Service Agencies, Law Enforcement and others.
May I work if I'm under 18 years of age?
If you are under 18 years of age and are employed or looking for non-agricultural work, you will need a WA State Parent/School Authorization form completed for your employer. However; if you hold a high school diploma, you do not need the form filled out, but your employer will need a copy of the diploma. If you do not have a diploma, you will need your form signed by your high school principal or other school authority; if you are in EvCC's high school program the signature would be through youth re-engagement, or the VP of Student Services.
