Student Job Resources

Learn about the opportunities and requirements for part-time student employment, as well as employment resources offered by UC San Diego.


Handshake is UC San Diego's database of off-campus jobs, internships, volunteer opportunities, and on-campus jobs (including work-study).


Work-study is subsidized employment for eligible undergraduates. You earn this self-help financial aid, so you don't have to repay it. The state or federal government, your hiring department, and the work-study program share the cost of your earnings.

Job fairs and targeted employer events

The Career Center holds several annual job and career fairs, partnering with national and international employers to provide students exposure to career and internship opportunities.

On-campus interviewing (OCI)

UC San Diego students and recent alumni have the opportunity to interview with a variety of employers each term. Interviews are for entry-level positions and internships.
