Columbia Work Award

The Columbia Work Award (CWA) is awarded by Student Financial Services to a select number of high achieving new students who want to work part-time on-campus.

The process of getting a CWA job is the same as getting other jobs on campus. Go to ColumbiaWorks and apply for fall on-campus CWA and Work-Aid jobs.

Apply for jobs based on your interests, skills and schedule. Columbia College Chicago employs students in various administrative and academic departments, libraries, laboratories and more. Supervisors from the hiring departments will review your online resume/application and contact you for an interview if your skills and available work schedule match their requirements for the job. Bring a copy of your resume to the interview.

Come to our ColumbiaWorks workshop August 28th at 11:00 am in 623 S. Wabash Ave. 1st floor, Haus @ the Quincy Wong Center.
