There are many ways to find a part-time job. The Harvard Student Employment Office hosts a jobs database to connect employers with Harvard students. Only current undergraduates, graduate students, and enrolled Division of Continuing Education students are able to access the database. Jobs range from routine roles like office help and tutoring to temp roles like snow shoveling.
Students can also find part-time employment on their own. Two resources that they can leverage include the Faculty Aide Program and the Federal Work Study Program:
- Faculty Aide Program: This program can fund salaries for students who are interested in getting started in research by working with a faculty member with a pre-existing project.
- Federal Work Study Program: Depending on student financial eligibilty, employers would receive subsidies to help pay student wages, enabling these students to be attractive candidates particuarly for non-profit employers on campus and in the Boston area.
