Where: Chalmer’s Conference center located on the third floor of the Niswonger Commons building.

  • What is a Work Study Job Fair?
    The Job Fair is comprised of Work Study Supervisors from across campus who have open positions in their areas. This will give students a chance to meet with the supervisors and discuss availability and interest.
  • Is a student hired at the job fair?
    Yes, Student will interview with the supervisor right then and there. However, some supervisors may only take the names of interested students and conduct their own interviews later.
  • Does my student need to bring anything?
    If a student intends to be hired fully and start working as soon as possible, then yes there are few things they will need to bring with them.
    Students will complete the I9 and W4 hiring paper work with a Human Resources Rep at the job fair or in the Human Resources Department depending on availability. The I9 requires that a student show identification to prove eligibility for employment in the US. There are several different type of identifications that may be used. Commonly used, student will bring their Driver’s License and Social Security Card. Check out the full list of acceptable identifications.
    (Note:) The list shows three columns A, B, and C. A student will need to bring either a single item from column A, or two items one from column B and one from column C.
  • When can my student begin working?
    After a student has been hired by a supervisor, completed their HR paper, and met with the work study coordinator to resolve any questions a student will be cleared to start working.


Students who are not able to attend the work-study job fair will still have a chance to find a position on campus. Students can visit the Job Board located on the second floor of Virginia Hall in front of the Financial Aid office for open positions, or click >>here<< for a list of open positions.
