The Work-Study Program encourages students to seek part-time employment while they are enrolled in school so they have a greater opportunity to earn rather than borrow money to pay for educational expenses. The program provides students access to work with the schedule flexibility they need so they can have a healthy balance between school commitments and their work obligations.

How do I find a work-study job?

If you receive financial aid from UC Berkeley, and have a Federal Work-Study Program award as part of your financial aid package, you can log in with your CalNet ID to search the job listings.

You can search for a particular job category or you can sort according to the job headings. For job details, click on the 10-digit job number.

You can apply for work-study jobs just as you would apply for any job—with a resume, and, to increase your chances of getting an interview, a cover letter. The employer chooses how applicants apply for the job, selects the candidates to be interviewed, and does the hiring. If you’re hired, you’ll need to accept or decline the job offer on the work-study website.

See Work-Study Information for Students for additional information.


Learn More

To learn more about Work-Study and how to begin searching for a job, please see Work-Study Information for Students.

For additional Work-Study questions, students can call Cal Student Central at (510) 664-9181, phone hours: 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. or open a case. Employers with questions should email
