Find a Job

A variety of on- and off-campus student jobs, including work study and student help positions, are posted online through Handshake. Student Help jobs are on-campus positions funded and supported through individual departments. Examples of student employment include working as a tutor, front desk staff, custodial worker or food service assistant.

The Federal Work Study program provides jobs for students with financial need. The amount of Federal Work Study awarded depends on financial need as determined by the FAFSA, the amount of other financial aid awarded, and the availability of funds at Madison College. Visit the Federal Work Study Program webpage for additional information.
