USM Student Employment

Working on-campus during your time at USM is a great way to incorporate real-life professional experiences into your education. Navigating on-campus employment can be confusing, but the Career & Employment Hub is here to help. 

Federal Work Study vs. Department Funded Student Jobs

For a student to obtain a federal work study job, the student needs to have federal work study funds included in their financial aide package after completing the FAFSA. If you're not sure if you qualify, you can check in MaineStreet or contact Student Financial Services. Any USM student is eligible to obtain a department funded student job, regardless of whether they received federal work study or not. 

How to Find Available Positions

Openings can be found on our digital job board, USM Career Connections. Once signed in, the lower left-hand side of the screen will show an option for viewing only Federal Work Study or Department Funded positions. Click the link above for more information.
