The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program is a part-time employment program for undergraduate students contingent upon the availability of federal funds. FWS jobs are available only to students who have received funding as part of their financial aid packages. If you have received a financial award for the Federal Work-Study program, contact your advisor in The Office of Financial Aid for assistance in searching for a position on EagleOps.
If you do not have a financial award with The Office of Financial Aid, finding an on-campus, part-time job may be difficult, but not impossible. Here are a few suggestions to help you search for positions:
- Undergraduate students can use EagleOps to browse potential on-campus job postings. Some departments will post openings through the system, but are not required to do so. To search these positions, click on the OCI and Job Listings tab in your left navigation bar and filter your search by Type of Job and select ‘Emory On-Campus Job (Non-FWS)‘ to view and apply. (Oxford students will filter by the ‘Oxford Workship/On-Campus Job’ Type of Job.)
- If there is a particular department of interest to you, contact them directly to inquire about job opportunities.
- Search for part-time positions through Emory University’s Human Resources office
- Some departments that hire students directly through their departmental website include:
- The Library system
- Emory Telefund
- Recreation and Wellness
- Living at Emory
- Academic Technology Services – Student Digital Life
- Use Handshake to search and apply to off-campus part-time positions.
- Students are also able to use an additional and robust job search tool provided through The Career Center called CareerShift. CareerShift helps job seekers navigate the published and hidden job market to find career opportunities, internships, part-time positions, and much more. Named “The Best Job Search Tool on the Internet,” CareerShift is available to Emory students. An emory.edu email address is required to search and create an account.
- The Career Center partners with The School of Nursing’s Office Community Job-Board to connect students with Emory faculty and staff who need personal, in-home assistance, such as babysitting, tutoring, pet-sitting, etc. Though this is listed for Nursing students, these roles are open for all Emory students.
- Visit the restaurants, stores, and other businesses near campus in Emory Village, Emory Pointe, and the Conference Center.
