Work-Study Program prepares students for the real world
Posted on: August 27, 2012
To give students an opportunity to gain financial assistance and hands-on work experience, College of the Mainland has created a number of work-study positions. The Work-Study Program offers students the opportunity to explore a potential career field through working at jobs either on or off campus up to 15 hours per week.
“It prepares them for the real world,” said Electra Long James, Work-Study Program coordinator. “Students can gain work skills they will use when they transfer to a university or enter the workforce.”
The program also gives students the opportunity to make professional contacts who can provide reference letters for future positions.
To be considered for positions, students must first complete the FAFSA and be making satisfactory academic progress. To view current postings and job requirements year-round, visit www.com.edu/financial-aid/work-study-positions.php or call Electra Long James at 409-933-8399.
