Student Employees

The  CAREER CENTER  can help you with applying & getting hired: resume & cover letter guidance, Handshake, interview preparation

HANDSHAKE

Handshake is CSU’s online recruiting platform where campus employers can connect with students through online job and internship postings, application management, career events and trainings.

 


 

RESUME, COVER LETTER & INTERVIEW

Part of applying for campus employment will be submitting a resume & (potentially) a cover letter and participating in an interview.   Remember,  your resume can include experiences outside of paid roles, such as volunteer work, student organization involvement, classwork, etc.  Use the following resources to prepare your application materials.

 


 

WANT TO CONNECT 1:1?

Our Drop-Ins are an easy way to visit with someone for a quick question and to get started exploring, finding a job, or have your resume, cover letter, or graduate school personal statement reviewed. Drop-Ins are offered both in person at the Career Center and online.

The  OFFICE OF FINANCIAL AID  can help you with work study awards

OFFICE OF FINANCIAL AID

There are two types of employment for students: Work-Study & Student Hourly.

  • Work Study: financial aid awarded via the FAFSA or the Request Work-Study Application; types include “need-based” and “no-need” work-study. Part of a student’s wages earned through a work-study position are supplemented by state, federal or institutional funds.
  • Student Hourly: campus hourly positions are available throughout campus and do not require a work-study award.

Did you apply for a work study award?  Apply and check your work study award status through RAMweb.
