Employers are looking more carefully at a college graduate’s work experience when making hiring decisions since degrees alone may no longer adequately signal an individual’s intellectual capacity, resilience, and grit.

The Private-Sector Work-Study (PWS) Program at Alamo Colleges is a form of financial aid that allows eligible students to work off-campus employed with partnering businesses.
PWS partners with area businesses to provide students the opportunity to earn their federal financial aid work-study award and learn through relevant work experiences. You will be able to enrich your academic knowledge, gain real-world experience, and improve your job prospects after graduation. In turn, area employers gain valuable part-time employees with supplemented wages, and they have the opportunity to play a significant role in the education of aspiring professionals.
