Resume Review Process 

Please note resumes go through a review process when you apply for positions. You are able to apply for positions only after the resume has been reviewed and approved. This helps increase the competitiveness of your application and allows our advisors to share best practices for resume writing, a skill that will help for the current position you are applying for and future positions. Check out this article to find out more information about the review process.  

Work Study 

Work-study is a form of need-based financial aid that allows students to work on campus (or with an approved off-campus employer) to earn money to help pay for college expenses. The maximum amount you can earn throughout the 2020-21 academic year is the amount listed on your financial aid offer.  There are student employment positions that are open to both work-study funded and non-work study funded students.

Student Employee Training and Development 

We are in the process of building out professional development training for student employees and student employee supervisors for the academic year. These will be posted in Pioneer Careers and advertised on our website. More to come. Stay tuned!
