Employment Opportunities

Many graduate students obtain employment to help fund their studies, often using the following resources:

Trachtenberg School Career Central: An online career management tool for job, internships and fellowship announcements; application; on-campus recruiting; subscriptions/websites; and event registration. This resource is available to students immediately after accepting admission to the Trachtenberg School.

GW Career Center: Information on full-time and part-time jobs, internships, cooperative education, temporary and summer positions around the D.C. area is available through Career Services at GW.

GW Jobs: Maintained by the Division of Human Resource Services, this site provides information about full-time and regular part-time positions at GW. After a three-month waiting period, new GW employees, as well as the spouses and children of full-time employees, may receive educational benefits. (Note: Graduate students employed full- or part-time on a research grant may use their tuition benefits immediately if they begin their employment before the first day of classes.)

Federal Work-Study Program: Available to U.S. citizens, provides jobs for graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses.

Employment Opportunities for International students: Any international students with F-1 or J-1 visa status may be able to supplement their classroom experiences and personal funds through employment, co-operative education or internships, but proper employment authorization must be obtained BEFORE beginning work. For more information, contact the International Services Office.
