Student Employment

A workstudy award allows a student to apply to get an on-campus job that pays $15 per hour. The funds are awarded on a first come, first serve basis and employment is not guaranteed, nor is there a guarantee that, if hired, the full award will be earned. If you've been awarded workstudy and are interested in applying for a job, search for positions at Hennepin Technical College on Handshake.
