Search for Jobs & Internships
It is important to build effective job search skills and enhance your employment and recruiting knowledge to meet your career goals.
The Center for Career Services features resources—online and in person—that can help you learn how to target potential employers, negotiate salaries, draft and edit superior resumes or cover letters and interview well. These resources can increase opportunities for internships and part-time employment while you’re a student and for full-time jobs in the future.
We use the GWork system to allow GW students and alumni exclusive access to their own personal employment management center. All full-time, degree-seeking GW students and alumni and thousands of employing organizations are registered in GWork.
Internship and Job Listings
Search and apply for full-time and part-time jobs and internships specifically posted for GW students and alumni. Positions include full-time, part-time, on-campus, off-campus, Federal Work Study positions, paid and unpaid internships and temporary and short-term positions. Receive automatic notifications of new job postings that meet your preferences.
You can also apply for positions that interest you through the on-campus recruiting program and schedule on-campus interviews with various organizations.
Make sure to make an appointment with your Career Coach to assist you with the preparation, search and interview process.

All full-time current degree-seeking students will receive a welcome email at their @gwmail.gwu.edu email address with password and login information for GWork approximately two weeks prior to their first semester. Incoming first-year students will receive their passwords in the summer prior to their first semester.
GWork is part of the NACElink Network, a collaboration between the George Washington University, the National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE), DirectEmployers and Symplicity.
Job Search Tools
In addition to job listings in GWork, we offer exclusive online resources that allow you to search for employment opportunities and company contact information at thousands of organizations in a wide variety of industries.
Grants for Unpaid Internships
Apply for funding for your unpaid internship through the Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund (KACIF). KACIF encourages you to pursue unpaid internships that foster career exploration and enhance your academic interests, but reduce the financial challenges associated with unpaid internships.
Credit for Summer Internships
Students may receive academic credit for their internship by participating in the Center's online course, Elective Internship: Experience & Reflection, which will enhance student career development and learning through active engagement in their summer internship. The 1-credit course is designed to help build career skills, understand occupational options, practice effective communication and observe professionalism in the workplace.
