Student Employment

What is Student Employment?

Student Employment at GW refers to the hiring and administration of part-time jobs in which the student earns an hourly wage, and the employer is the George Washington University. This includes all Federal Work Study (FWS) jobs that are with an on-campus department or pre-approved off-campus organization.

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.

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.


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

If you are a former student employee who has graduated from GW, please review this message for important information regarding your employment records.
