On Campus Student Employment (Non-Work Study)
Pace Career Services assists students who have not been awarded Federal Work Study (FWS) funds as part of their Financial Aid package in obtaining a job on-campus. If you are unclear about your status, contact the Financial Aid office on your campus.
Students interested in securing on-campus employment (Non-Work Study) should follow the directions below to search and apply for campus positions. To view Federal Work Study (FWS) jobs, go the the Human Resources Jobs Posting Pages.

We also work with students to obtain an off-campus internship or job while you are studying here at Pace.

3) Application Procedure:
In order to be considered all students must submit a completed “Application for Student Employment” form. Save the fully completed document to your computer easy retrieval.
- It is important that you list the hours that you are available to work each day of the week on the Application for Student Employment.
- Be specific! (ex. 10am-3pm rather than 5 hours)
- Hiring Managers generally need students that can work up to 20 hours per week during each year.
- The majority of departments need student employees that can work during regular business hours from Monday – Friday between 9am-5pm. Carefully read the Details of each job posting for any special hours or days noted as required.
- Consider your class schedule and commuting time when listing the hours that you may work. For example, if your class ends at 12:10 in Pleasantville, and you need to drive and park to a job on the Briarcliff campus, do not list that you are available at 12:15pm. If you need to use the Pace Bus, be sure to take the Transportation schedule into consideration. This schedule can be found on the Pace home page, A-Z Index under “B” for Bus Schedule or “T” for Transportation.
Once you have selected a position of interest, scroll to the bottom of the job, click on “APPLY” in the “How to Apply” box. Note the name and email address of the Hiring Manager. Email a brief note of interest with position title and your Application for Student Employment attached.
The Hiring Manger will review all applications and will contact you directly if they are interested in scheduling an interview with you.
