Information for Students

Meet your educational and personal expenses while attending college.  The Student Employment Office at the CDC provides you with helpful resources to find on-campus student employment, off-campus federal work-study positions, and local part-time jobs.

First Year Students

Every first-year student with work-study (both on and off-campus) must begin her employment on campus with Dining Services and fill at least one shift per week during the fall and spring semesters. After signing up for a Dining Services shift, these students may seek additional employment elsewhere, if desired.

Search for Jobs

Mount Holyoke College uses a student employment database called JobX.   In JobX, you can easily search through all available on and off campus listings.  In addition, you can sign up for JobMail, which will automatically e-mail you when new jobs are posted on the site that meet your criteria. Once you have found a position that interests you, JobX allows you to apply for the position directly.  

NOTE: All students must submit a resume and cover letter when applying for positions through JobX.

Student Employment Policies

All students, including those not on work-study, may not work more than 8-10 hours per week on or off campus during the academic terms.

Level 1 jobs are only available to students with work-study (although students with work-study may pursue Level 2-4 jobs as well).

Students without work-study may pursue Level 2-4 jobs. If you are unsure about your work-study status, contact Student Financial Services or the Student Employment Office.
