Jobs and Internships
Many students work on or off campus while they are enrolled in classes, as well as explore opportunities for after graduation. We invite you to explore your job, internship and volunteer opportunities here!
Where do I start?
The SBCC Job Connection is a jobs database for SBCC students with on- and off-campus jobs, internships and

Each campus department conducts its own hiring, and some do not post job openings on the Job Connection. You may go in person to see if a department is hiring. Have your available-to-work hours ready. While some supervisors do not require a résumé, if you want to prepare a résumé beforehand, drop by the Career Center and we will be glad to help.
The departments below often have applications that can be picked up in their areas.
Security: Issue parking citations, parking permits, provide parking information at kiosks and be campus escorts for students. Drop by the Security Office & fill out an application. (Must have received Federal Work Study financial aid.)
Food Services: Main Cafeteria and West Campus Café: you can drop by the cafeteria to pick up an application for jobs such as cashier, food server and kitchen clean up. Coffee shops, located in the Campus Center and West Campus Library, are posted on the Job Connection.

Please note that SBCC is unable to research the integrity of each potential employer. Therefore, students are urged to undertake this responsibility. Use caution and common sense when applying for any position with an organization or applying for a job with a residential address.
While there are legitimate opportunities for individuals to work from home, be sure to research the position in advance of applying. If you suspect a position listed on Job Connection is fraudulent, please contact the Career Center. If you believe you are the victim of fraud resulting from a job listing, please contact the local police as well.
It is very important for you to educate yourself about potential scams. Here are some good tips that the job is probably fraudulent:
- The promise of a large salary for very little work - especially those that state thousands of dollars of income per month with little or no experience required.
- Positions that ask you to give credit card, PayPal or bank account numbers, or copies of personal documents.
- Jobs that ask you to send payment by wire service or courier.
- Positions in which you are offered a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account - often for depositing checks or transferring money.
LinkedIn is a social networking site for professionals. Your LinkedIn profile can serve as an online résumé. Using LinkedIn can be valuable in job searched, preparing for interviews or making professional contacts. Career Center staff can help you set up your LinkedIn account and profile.
