We also have an online job board for Terra State students and alumni - positions are posted frequently so be sure to check regularly.

Student & Alumni Job Board

I do recommend that anyone attending or planning to attend Terra State utilize the opportunities available. I love the Terra State Job Board. That is how I found my job as a legal secretary.”
