Work Study Funds are Federal funds used to pay student wages.  Regular Work Funds are SE funds used to pay student wages.  The jobs are basically similar, the title Regular/Work Study tells from where the funds originate.

Soft Skills are important to most employers.  You do not have to tell others you have them, but it is important to demonstrate them on a daily basis, especially when applying, during interviews and when on the job:

  • Read the Job Descriptions carefully, to determine the duties and how/where to apply.
  • Apply for on-campus jobs with a professional demeanor and clean casual or business casual clothing.  First impressions are very important.  Even on a college campus.  Campus departments are not required to hire you, just because you have been approved to work on campus.  Don’t apply right after a hard workout, for example, without cleaning up first.  Clean clothes/clean body help to make good first impressions.  Shorts and t-shirts are not usually good attire for applying/interviewing.
  • Once you apply, follow up with the hiring dept, within a few days.
  • Show up for work when scheduled/expected.  A job is different than going to class.  The job depends on you showing up and working.  The class does not.  But all the same, go to class, too.  You’ll need to keep your GPA up, if you plan to obtain a job after graduation.
  • Be on time for interviews, work and all appointments.
  • Be courteous.  Learn and practice excellent communication skills and customer service.
