Student Involvement

Career Services

Career Services offers career coachingself-assessment, online resume and cover letter development, and assistance with networking and interviewing to help students and alumni discover their talents and interests, decide on an academic major, explore industries and career options, and create an effective job search strategy.

Student Employment
  • Participating in part-time employment during your college years can help you gain a variety of experiences and learn workplace skills that can be used in a full-time career after graduation. Such opportunities through Student Employment are conveniently located on or near campus. Employers that work with student employment understand that you are a student first, and are encouraged to be accommodating of your academic schedule and related needs. A student employment position can also help you make connections with GW staff who can become valuable parts of your professional network.
  • The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program is a federally-funded work program that allows GW students who have received a Federal Work Study award from the Office of Student Financial Assistance to earn money through a part-time job during the academic year. If you have been offered and accepted FWS funding as part of your financial aid package, you are eligible to hold a FWS position. Participation is optional; in other words, just because you accepted a FWS award as part of your financial aid package does not mean you are under any obligation to work in a FWS position. However, you will only earn whatever portion of your FWS award money that you work to earn in a FWS position.
  • Both Federal Work Study and non-Federal Work Study positions can be found through the Student Employment Talent Management System.
Co-Curricular Programs

GW Co-Curricular Programs are offered after move-in and during Orientation week and help first-year students connect with peers around a shared identity, specialized topic, or common area of interest.
