CA$H (Convenient Access to Student Hires) is the Simmons resource for student employment. This website provides a listing of on-campus work-study and general employment positions and also off-campus work study positions with local non-profits. Please note that work-study positions are only available to students with work-study financial aid awards, which are generally included only as part of undergraduate students' financial aid packages.

- Are there jobs available for me if I do not have a work-study award?
Absolutely. General Employment on-campus jobs are listed separately from work-study jobs in CA$H. Any enrolled student at Simmons College may apply for a General Employment job on-campus.
- Are there jobs on campus specifically for graduate students?
Yes. In the "Job Description" section of the online job postings, employers will list qualifications for their on-campus position, which may include being a graduate student. Some of the job titles will also specifically note the position as being for a graduate student.
- Why are no jobs showing up when I search for them using CA$H?
Typically this is due to selecting too many filters on the search screen before displaying the job listings. We recommend that you do not enter any filters and browse through the full list of jobs available in CA$H.
- Can I find non-work-study off-campus jobs on CA$H?
All non-work-study off-campus jobs (including full-time, part-time, internships, summer jobs, etc.) can be found on Simmons' other online job board, CareerLink. Please see the CareerLink page for more information.
- How many hours may I work per week in my on-campus/work-study job?
Simmons policy requires that any graduate student working more than 20 hours per week total on-campus must receive signed approval from their academic advisor. Approval forms are located in the Student Payroll office (Main College Building, E101).
