While there are many advantages to working on-campus, Lincoln is also a great place to find off-campus employment. Even in tough economic times, our local economy has remained remarkably resilient. Start your search with these sites:

  • JobZone is a consortium of eight colleges and universities in the state of Nebraska. JobZone is a place where students can search for internships, part-time and full-time jobs are posted by local businesses.
