As we continue our efforts to centralize and simplify the student job search process, many student campus jobs will be advertised through The Career Center’s Handshake system.
Click the Jobs button at the top of the Handshake homepage and then click the filter button for On Campus. You can click any job title for more information and instructions for applying (read these carefully as departments may have different instructions).
Most student positions do not require you to submit a resume. There may be a few that do, but don’t fret if you don’t have one just yet. Don’t let your resume be an obstacle that keeps you from applying for the job you want! The Career Center has great advice on building a resume, so give it a try! Don’t be afraid to apply for multiple jobs ~ you may not always get your first choice.
Most jobs for the academic year (September through May) will be advertised starting in late summer, but it’s a great idea to check back often! Don’t forget that jobs may also be announced in Daily Messages, Switchboard, or WSO’s job board. These will often direct you to Handshake for more details and/or application instructions.
You can also ask friends, not-friends-yet, JAs, department administrative assistants, and faculty to see if they know of available jobs. Many positions, at Williams and beyond, are created through the connections you make, so don’t be shy when looking for work!
Sometimes, residents of Williamstown will seek out Williams students to help with lawn care, gardening, computer skills, etc. These jobs will generally be posted on Switchboard.
If a position indicates that you must be Federal Work Study (FWS) eligible, please verify that you’re an eligible FWS candidate through Human Resources System, or by talking to your financial services advisor, prior to applying.
