I have been awarded work-study; what do I need to do to get a job?
Once you receive your work-study award, relax until registration for the fall semester. There is nothing you can do over the summer about getting a work-study job on campus. One of the stops at fall registration will be at the Career Services Office where you find out what jobs are available, fill out employment forms (W-4 and I-9), and pick up a job application. If you have questions about work-study before you arrive at St. John's, call the Career Services Office at 505-984-6066 or 505-984-6067.
