Off-Campus Work-Study Partners

Becoming a Work-Study Partner

We work with community-based non-profit organizations, local municipalities, and small businesses within the state of Wisconsin. If you are not currently a partner, please see our Becoming a Work-Study Partner page to see if you may qualify. All positions for non-partner organizations should be posted through the Non-UW Jobs page.

Exclusive Student Jobs Platform Access

Federal Work-Study Community Partners are the only non-UW employers with access to the Student Jobs Platform. Our Federal Work-Study Community Partners are non-UW employers who use work-study to pay for a portion of their students’ wages and have a contract with the Student Employment Team to do so. 

What is the Student Jobs Platform?

The Student Jobs Platform allows employers to post jobs, receive and manage applications, create search committees, schedule interviews, send offers, and hire students into the campus Human Resource System (HRS) all in one place. An optional onboarding portal is also available for UW-Madison employers to help students get started in their new roles.

Student Jobs Platform Tutorials

Work-Study Partners should refer to the handbook they received when starting their partnership with the Student Employment Team. If you require access to a tutorial not found in the handbook, contact our team at
