Work That Works


Pay off student loans faster or earn extra pocket money through Work That Works. Find unique opportunities from local employers that offer college students high-paying, part-time jobs that flex around class and exam schedules.

Work That Works is an innovative solution to fill the growing workforce needs of area employers and connect students at institutions of higher learning with high-paying jobs.

These employment opportunities are flexible with individual students’ schedules, including time off for exam preparation, and provide a variety of industry options—from retail to warehousing and manufacturing, with opportunities paying up to $23 per hour.

Work That Works is not an internship program, as many students taking part will be employed in positions that don’t necessarily relate to their areas of study. The goal of the program is to connect employers with students looking for employment. This could, however, provide an additional avenue to recruit students into internship programs once they have determined their academic focus.
