Work at the University

Another on-campus option is working in the students’ union. This is a good opportunity to get involved in current issues and to help other students at the university. Depending on the union and their mission, you might be able to help other international students and support them in getting around the university.

Restaurants are always looking for more help, so chances are that you will find a job relatively easily. You could work as a waiter, bar staff, or even in the kitchen, depending on your experience, skills, and preferences. This job opportunity will help you build your interpersonal skills, improve language proficiency and make you new friends.

Call Centres

Some international students find employment at call centers. This is a good choice for those who are communicative, friendly, and confident in their language and computer skills.

Also, call center jobs are not physically demanding, so they are a good choice if you prefer or need an office environment. On the other hand, working at a call center can be demanding. You need to possess excellent communication skills and proven above average language skills.
