How to Apply

Hints to Get Hired
When you turn in an application, you'll want to have an edge over the other students. Here are a few of our recommendations.
- Feel free to include a résumé. It's not required, but it shows professionalism.
- Departments use the contact information you list to reach you for interviews of questions. Please make sure it's legible and current.
- In general, use your best hand-writing. If you're tech-savvy, you can fill it out on the computer, print it, and sign at the bottom.
- If your class schedule allows it, try to be available mornings. Most students are not.
Once you've turned in your application, the financial aid office sends it out to all the departments and divisions on campus that want to hire FWS students.
