    Career services at your school? Online ads? Word of mouth? Random cork board?

    Employers want to know.

    Might help to clarify if you are referring to undergrads vs. grad students and whether you are speaking about current students looking for small (10-hr week) part time gigs or full-time employment for after graduation.

    What sort of work? The approach differs drastically between clinical/human services, research, teaching, or "food on the table" jobs.

    Seriously, I'm sure talking to friends and online, 90 percent.

    Cork boards are sooooo 90s!

    Hey don't diss the corkboard. Many a half-baked opportunity was found there!

    But seriously though, word of mouth or popular websites have been my go to. Though I'm in NYC so people scour everything for extra side hustles.

    I've noticed that where I look for jobs vs. where I actually wind up finding them have not had a lot of overlap in my career thus far.

    For a random side hustle as a student I would look in the student newspaper. Usually things like “pick my kids up after school every Tuesday.”

    I ask all my supervisors, other trainees, and google whatever position I'm looking for and my city/state. Maybe send to Training Directors at grad schools or internship/postdoc sites? They typically forward us jobs.
