Benefits of Hiring a GW Student Employee

GW Departments and FWS Partner Organizations can greatly benefit from hiring a GW student to work with their office or organization. Students are energetic, already skilled in various fields, and ready to learn even more! They understand the nuances of a university setting and can bring a student perspective to many projects and activities. GW Students eagerly seek opportunities to practice their developing skills, learn more about various content areas, and give back to their university and D.C. community.

Select either GW Departments or FWS Partner Organizations to learn more about how your department or organization can hire a GW student employee.

If you are an employer outside of the university looking to hire students for full-time, part-time, or internship positions, please review the Center for Career Services’ Employers page for information on recruiting at GW.


About Student Employment

Student Employment does not assign students to specific jobs but rather provides them with the resources necessary to locate the job that is best suited to their skills, needs, and interests. For GW students, participating in part-time employment during their college years can help them gain a variety of experiences and learn workplace skills that can be used in a full-time career after graduation. Our office helps facilitate that process by maintaining a list of available jobs, training GW employers and off-campus FWS Partner Organizations to recruit and supervise student employees, providing assistance with pre-employment paperwork, managing employment aspects of the Federal Work Study program, referring students to resources within the Center for Career Services, and working with departments across GW to provide students with a meaningful and positive part-time employment experience.

Student employee positions are not eligible for tuition benefits or stipends as a form of compensation or work performed. Also, Student Employment at GW does not refer to full-time, part-time, or internship opportunities at external organizations, or jobs through University Human Resources or Graduate Student Assistantships & Fellowships. Please contact those departments for more information about available opportunities.
