International students are only allowed to work for Fresno Pacific University. Openings for on-campus jobs are advertised in the Career Services Center, not on-line. Employment is limited and NOT guaranteed. Each student must apply and possibly interview to get a job. Students should not plan to make a lot of money from on-campus work.

English language students are likely to get jobs in the cafeteria, gardening, cleaning or maintenance.
