Off-Campus Work-Study Opportunities
The Alamo Colleges encourages you to seek part-time, career-related employment to build your resume and begin building your professional career pathway. Employers want college graduates to have work experience, and ideally, work experience in the applicant’s major field of study.
Through the Alamo Colleges Community Work-Study (CWS) and the Private-Sector Work-Study (PWS) programs, students eligible for federal financial work-study can choose to work off-campus to gain professional experience working at a non-profit or governmental agency, or working at a private-sector business.
Choosing off-campus work-study opportunities will allow you to gain in-demand skills, clarify your career goals, and make career connections while earning your work-study award.
