Finding a Job on Campus
Students who do not qualify for employment through the Federal Work-Study program, but who are interested in on-campus employment should contact the Career Center located in Caroline Hall, or apply directly to the department or program of interest for any positions that may be open for student workers (this is not the procedure for FWS assignments). Almost all of Washington College’s departments and programs hire in the early Fall for the academic year. Additional job openings occur after winter break for the second semester. Short-term employment opportunities are also available for special events such as the Office of College Advancement’s Phone-a-thons.
The following areas employ a significant number of students each year:
-Lifetime Fitness Center
-Barnes & Noble Bookstore
Federal Work Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program offers eligible students work opportunities both on and off-campus. Eligible students receive offers of part time employment at Washington College as part of their financial aid award package upon completion of the need-based financial aid award process. Federal Work-Study students must be given first consideration for jobs on campus in order to assist in fulfilling their financial need.
For more information about the Federal Work-Study program, please visit Financial Aid. Any questions specific to the Federal Work-Study program should be forwarded to the Office of Student Aid at (410) 778-7214.
