Work-Study is a government-subsidized student employment program designed to assist students in financing their post-secondary education. These types of jobs are different from other types of part-time jobs because employers must be approved ahead of time. Work-Study may be particularly appealing to employers because they only have to pay 30% of the student’s wages – the remaining 70% is paid by the Work-Study program.
Employers looking for part-time or seasonal help may post job openings on the Hirealonghorn Job Bank. Office policy, however, prevents employment agencies (e.g. temporary, recruiting, and staffing agencies) from utilizing the job bank.
Internships cannot be posted to the Hirealonghorn Job Bank. To post an internship position, employers should contact the appropriate campus career centers or HireUTexas.
The Longhorn Center for Community Engagement offers a wide variety of services to non-profit agencies in search of UT volunteers. Agencies must register their organization with the Longhorn Center, to post volunteer positions. Hundreds of UT students, staff, and faculty search the database daily for volunteer opportunities.
Employers may post full-time positions for SUMMER on the Hirealonghorn Job Bank. Full-time, professionally-oriented positions, however, should be posted elsewhere. Employers should contact HireUTexas, a cooperative effort of many of the University’s career services offices. HireUTexas provides access to Business, Communication, Engineering, Fine Arts, and Liberal Arts students and alumni.
