Part-Time Employment

Many students are employed by the college and a number of agencies in the surrounding community. Students should be careful not to overload their work schedule so that it interferes with their study and class time. Career Services receives many requests from local employers eager to employ students in a variety of part-time jobs. Their offices are located in the Advisement Center on the Helena-West Helena campus, contact April Herring in DeWitt at (870) 946-3506, ext. 1607, or contact Sylvia Boyd in Stuttgart at (870) 673-4201, ext. 1809.
