Many colleges will offer students a federal Work-Study job as part of a financial aid package. This helps the needy students earn their way through college while gaining valuable skills and work experience.
Colleges assist students to locate jobs either on or off campus with a nonprofit or government employer or with a private for-profit company. To the maximum extent practical, students will be placed in work related to their studies or career plans.
Wages usually depend on the level of responsibility required by the job, but are equal at least to the federal minimum wage.
