The federal work study program allows students to work on campus or for a community partner and be paid, in part, by the Department of Education. If you are eligible for federal work study for the 2011-12 academic year, the Office of Financial Aid awarded it to you in your aid package this year. There are several ways to find a job on campus. One of the most common ways is by utilizing Nacelink, which is managed by the Career Management Center. This tool, found on the Career Management Center’s website (, allows students to create an account and search for job postings. Not all jobs are federal work study jobs so all students can use this tool to look for campus jobs.
If you do have federal work study and are still looking for a job this year, consider a community service position. IIT has partnered with numerous schools & non-profits in the area to utilize federal work study funds to pay students to work for these agencies. All jobs are posted in Nacelink, where you will find instructions on how to apply and whom to contact. Currently, the following agencies are looking to hire IIT students: Chinese American Service League, Center for Higher Development, Edge Alliance, Perspectives Charter School-IIT Math & Science Academy, Perspectives Charter School-Calumet Tech High School, the Young People’s Project and James Wood Elementary School. Apply today!
For questions related to the community service positions, please contact Kelli Goers in the Office of Financial Aid at [email protected]. Kelli does not do any hiring, so check Nacelink to apply, but she is happy to help with any questions about the process.
Happy Job Searching!
