Summer Jobs

This page is co-hosted by the Career Development Center and the Student Employment Office.

A successful summer job search starts early! Employers begin to hire as early as February and many positions are filled by March and April. Summer positions are posted on CODA. aaron

Work Study

What is Work Study?

Work-Study is a need-based financial aid award. It is not a grant (you must work to earn it), it is not a loan (you don't have to repay it), and it is not a tution waiver (students receive a paycheck twice a month and decide what to do with the money). For the most part, it is much like any other regular part-time student job on campus. Only about 30% of jobs on campus require that you have a Work Study award.

Training Opportunities for Supervisors

We provide overview trainings covering hiring and pay paperwork and processes, and a review of how to use the CODA database. In addition, we would like to get suggestions from supervisors about what kinds of information and training they want and will make every effort to arrange them.


Recognition programs don't have to be expensive. A simple spoken phrase like, "thank you for your hard work," can go a long way.


Policy for Posting Community Jobs

The job listings are available to current Evergreen students, former students and Alumni. Using the information provided by prospective employers, students will contact employers directly. Employers make their own selection of employee and all arrangements are made directly between employer and employee.

The Student Employment Office does not provide a referral service, and makes no guarantee that all jobs posted will be filled.

Community Job Board Disclaimer

The Evergreen State College Student Employment Office acts as a free-of-charge job posting service only and makes no recommendations regarding potential employers or student employees.

We are not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus private employment. All hiring, scheduling, and compensation for community job postings are handled directly between the student and the employer.

Conflict Resolution for Student Employment Issues

If you believe that you have been discriminated against or harassed because of your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or age, you should seek out the advice and assistance of the Human Resources Office.
