If you have been awarded a work-study student employment position from the Financial Aid Office, you must advertise and post your position(s) through Handshake, our online job management software system. You will be able to collect and review resumes, schedule interviews (optional), and hire the candidates you see as a good fit. Review the work-study program department guidelines for additional information.

If you would like your department to be considered for a work-study position, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
