When mousing over Job Search, you will see the option to search "Work-Study" or "General" jobs. Work-study jobs are available only to students that have received work-study awards as part of their student financial aid package (see the Student Financial Services office for more information on work-study awards). General employment jobs are on-campus jobs open to any enrolled current student at Simmons College.
Once you have selected the type of job, you will be brought to a Search screen with many available filters. We strongly recommend that you do not enter any filter, but instead click "Search" and view the full listing of available jobs.

To apply for a particular job you are interested in, please be sure to read the application instructions fully and follow them closely. Most prospective employers will require a resume and an in-person interview. Check out our Career Toolkit pages for tips on these and other job search skills.
Once you are offered employment, you will need to go to Student Payroll to complete Forms I-9 and W-4. Please Note: It is against federal law to begin employment without completing a Form I-9, which verifies your eligibility to work in the United States.
Additionally, if you are hired at an off-campus work-study site your employer will need to complete an Off-Campus Work-Study Employment Agreement, available at Student Payroll (Main College Building, E101).
- If I am hired into a work-study job, will my wages be directly deducted from my tuition?
No, work-study is different from other forms of financial aid in that it is paid directly to you in the form of regular wages rather than deducted from your tuition bill. You may use these wages as you would any other form of pay.
- 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$H. Any enrolled student at Simmons College may apply for a General Employment job on campus.
- Why are no jobs showing up when I search for them using CA$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 Work-Study or General Employment jobs.
- How many hours may I work per week in my on-campus/work-study job?
Simmons policy prohibits full-time undergraduate students from working more than 20 hours per week total (including all on-campus and work-study jobs) while school is in session.
- 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 CareerLink. Please visit the CareerLink page for more information.
