Federal Work-Study job board

Federal Work-Study jobs are now on Workday!

Workday Job Board


Applying for a FWS job

  1. Accept your work-study offer. Only students who have accepted their Federal Work-Study offer from their Aid Summary will be eligible to be hired into work-study positions.

  2. Search and apply for jobs. Current students must log into Workday using their Ohio State username and password to search and apply for jobs.  You may review the Apply for Student Jobs job aid for instructions on applying within Workday.  Please note: If you are a current employee, the steps to apply are slightly different.  Please reference the instructions found here to update your profile before submitting an application.

  3. In the View section, click Search Student Federal Work Study Jobs

    • Using the options on the left, choose your campus.

    • Using the keyword search, enter "work study" or "FWS" to display jobs intended for work-study students.  You can also include additional keywords to locate remote/work from home options, or the Requisition Number to locate a specific job.

  4. Follow the Application Instructions on the post to apply for that job.

Not a FWS Student? No problem...

Students without work-study offers can also use Workday to find regular wage student positions at the university.  The only difference is that you would use the Search Student Jobs button instead, and not perform the "work study" keyword search.   Be aware, if you apply for a work-study position, but do not have a work-study offer, you cannot be hired into that position.  Review the Apply for Student Jobs job aid for more detailed steps.

Here are some additional campus-based employment resources for Columbus campus students who do not have a work-study offer:

  • We in Student Financial Aid administer a Student Job Board that is open to all active students.

  • Many departments and non-university employers use OSU Handshake, administered by Buckeye Careers.

  • Check your favorite department's website for employment opportunties.

Regional Campus Students 

Both work-study and regular wage student jobs at regional campuses can also be found on Workday.  Be sure to choose the correct Location in the filter options on the left when you login.
