Handshake Logo

Handshake is UW-Whitewater's online job board for students. Handshake includes student jobs as well as internships and jobs after graduation for all majors. Campus departments are asked to post available student jobs on Handshake so that students are aware of the employment opportunities across campus. 

On-Campus Jobs

UW-Whitewater employs approximately 2,500 students in a wide variety of roles. Some indicated on-campus positions require students to have Work Study.

  • Work Study:  Federal Work Study is a need-based aid program that is awarded to students who have demonstrated financial need. This program is available to citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Students who receive a Federal Work Study allocation as part of their financial aid package are eligible to apply for Work Study jobs on campus. Students can earn up to the amount listed on their award letter. Individuals with questions about Work Study should contact the Financial Aid Office, (262) 472-1130.

Working for A'Viands

A'Viands, the company that provides dining services to our campus, also employs several hundred students on campus. While these jobs are conveniently located on campus, students hired by A'Viands are not employed by UW-Whitewater and are paid directly by A'Viands. Therefore, A'Viands student employees are unable to claim Federal Work Study allocation.

Off-Campus Jobs

The Off-Campus Jobs posted on Handshake are jobs located within the region for students during the school year or seasonal jobs out of the area for the summer months. Area employers are encouraged to sign up for Handshake at to post their available off-campus jobs for students to view.
