The work-study job application process is very competitive. You are applying for a real job and as such you should dress and act like you are applying for a job. You should be prepared to tell the supervisors what skills you possess and relate any past job history or pertinent experience. There are many more eligible students looking for jobs in the work-study program than there are jobs available, so make sure you look and act as professional as possible. Remember to bring an up-to-date resume to your interview, or submit it by email if directed. If you need assistance with job search techniques, please meet with a Career Services Advisor.
