UW Student Jobs Offer Opportunities in Many Fields

Close to 15,000 students work for the university each academic year. From working as an assistant in the Cranberry Genetics Greenhouse to serving ice cream at Babcock Hall, a wide variety of opportunities exist across all 12 schools and colleges on campus as well as over 20 other divisions at the university, including Recreational Sports, Business Services, Libraries, Information Technology, Athletics, and University Police.

Launched earlier this year, the new Student Jobs website makes it easier for students to find a job that matches their potential interests and career aspirations. Students can sort jobs by category or outcomes: the former is in close alignment with common career clusters while the latter represents important experiences the employer anticipates the student be involved in throughout their employment. Students also have the ability to sign-up for notifications, so they can be alerted each time a job is posted that fits within a particular category, outcome, or even includes a certain keyword within the posting.

Geared for UW students, these jobs can provide an important opportunity for students to get a sense for exactly how their passions or interests may best relate to a future career.
