Part-time employment on campus is available through government- and state-funded programs for US citizens or permanent residents who have demonstrated financial need. Students who complete the FAFSA and indicate on their application that they would like to work on campus are automatically considered for work-study employment.
On and Off Campus
There are both on- and off-campus employment opportunities for students. All students, regardless of financial need, may apply for University-funded positions. Nearly all University departments/units employ students. Students can browse local job postings on the Career Services website.
A co-op is a joint venture between the University, an employer, and a student. Work assignments are related to a student’s major and are varied to provide a range of experience and training. Michigan Tech offers several options designed to accommodate the needs of both students and employers.
Internships are similar to co-ops, except a student has the freedom to choose a work assignment that is not directly related to their primary field of study. Although an intern usually doesn’t receive academic credit, an internship may provide invaluable work experience.
The Michigan Tech Career Services provides career development and placement assistance to undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni.
The Career Services website features HuskyJOBS, one of the largest recruiting networks of college career centers, HuskyJOBS provides students with access to job postings and employer accounts and offers the option to upload and publish a resume to a folder accessible by employers.
