Work Study/Job Placement
The CalWORKs Work Study program provides eligible students with assistance securing employment on and off campus. After attending the CalWORKs intake, please sign up to attend the CalWORKs Work Study orientation to learn how Work Study can help you with your welfare-to-work required core and non-core hours. Work Study is also an excellent opportunity to develop your professional skills, network with others in your field of interest and explore career paths.
