What if I don't have any 'real' work experience?

Most of the student jobs HFS offers are entry-level positions. We recognize that for many students, this will be their first opportunity to seek employment.  We appreciate having the opportunity to guide and mentor new employees into the workforce and potentially into careers. We value what you bring to the University. Please list any volunteer or school and community project experience on your application. Here are some resources for you to use to enhance your resume.

Thank you for your interest in working at HFS.
