Find a Job
Hawk Jobs is UW-Whitewater's online job board for students. Hawk Jobs includes student jobs as well as internships and jobs after graduation for most majors. Campus departments are asked to post available student jobs on Hawk Jobs so that students are aware of the employment opportunities across campus. Hawk Jobs is easy to use. To get started, check out this video.
UW-Whitewater employs approximately 2,500 students in a wide variety of roles. There are two main categories of on-campus positions, based on type of pay: Regular Pay positions and Work Study Positions:
- Regular Pay : The majority of student employees on campus fall into this category. Regular Pay means that the student does not receive Federal Work Study, and they are paid from department funds.
- 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 Chartwells
Chartwells, the company that provides dining services for our campus, employs several hundred studetns on campus. While these jobs are conveniently located on campus, students hired by Chartwells are not employees of UW-Whitewater and are paid directly by Chartwells. Therefore, Chartwells student employees are unable to use Federal Work Study funds for these jobs.
The Off-Campus Jobs posted on Hawk Jobs, are jobs located within the region for studetns during the school year, or seasonal jobs out of the area for teh summer months. Area employers are encouraged to forward their job postings to Hawk Jobs for viewing by students.
