The Student Employment Office

Our Mission

Our mission is to help Evergreen students: (1) find flexible part time work to defray educational costs, (2) find work opportunities that support their educational and career goals, and (3) equitably and appropriately manage the College's Work Study funds.

We provide resources and support for students looking for employment: on-campus, off-campus, part-time, temporary, seasonal, work-study, and non-work-study. The Student Employment Office is also eager to develop relationships with employers who are looking for talented interns, part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees.

Our Goals
