On-Campus Interviews
On-campus interviews are a convenient way for you to interview with prospective employers.  A number of high caliber organizations conduct on-campus interviews throughout the year, for full-time, part-time, and internship opportunities. To find out which organizations will be conducting on-campus interviews, to apply for opportunities, or to sign up for an interview, log into your Handshake account.

On-Campus Employment
Many university departments hire Pacific students into part-time positions. While many of these positions are open to all students, some require students to have federal work study funds as part of their financial aid package. Students who are awarded federal work-study are eligible to apply for jobs that are designated as "on-campus work study" positions.
