Career Development Center
West Chester University
A part-time job is a great way to earn money but also gain experience and build skills for future employment. This page provides links to help you connect with employment opportunities on campus as well as in the West Chester community. The Financial Aid Office manages all student employment programs (i.e., Federal Work Study) that are a part of your financial aid package. Some of the offices listed below may employ students for work study and other positions, but all questions about work study should be directed to Financial Aid.
Employers fax and email job postings to the career center daily, many of which are for part-time, summer, and childcare opportunities. The are kept in binders in our resource room for your access at any time the center is open.
Employment in Walking Distance is a list of West Chester companies and organizations all within walking distance of campus that have hired WCU students for jobs during the school year. Save this PDF to your computer or stop by the career center to look at a hard copy located in our resource room.
Please note that this list may not be comprehensive. We have gathered all the resources that we are aware of, but we may be missing some. If you are aware of other student employment (non-work study) opportunities at WCU, let us know and we will add them to this list.
