In addition to our Vatican Internship and Graduate Assistantship opportunities there are many other jobs/internships/research positions open to our students. Most of our students take jobs/internships in a computing related field during their summer breaks and our graduating seniors find the professional job market very promising. Here are some general resources to help you find your perfect situation.
Students in the Department of Computing Sciences may be able to work for the department on an hourly paid basis. A limited number of positions are available. Students with and without formal work study support may apply. Work can begin at any point in the semester. Contact Ms. Anne Hischar in the CSC department's main office (MSC 161) for more information.
Positions fall into four general categories:
- Systems Support - helping the full-time system management staff maintain the department labs and networks, or helping develop and maintain the department's web site.
- Research Assistants - helping faculty members with particular research projects.
- Teaching Assistants - helping faculty members administer courses, which may include grading, lab support, and material preparation.
