All campus-based employment opportunities, including work-study, are posted on Handshake. Positions are not assigned or guaranteed — rather, we provide students with tools and guidance to find opportunities that are a fit for their skills, interests, and availability. Campus employers may indicate preferences for specific skills and qualifications, including work-study eligibility, however, students may apply to any open position regardless of whether or not they meet these preferences. Click here to browse current campus job postings.
