Various paid undergraduate and graduate student assistantships are available in the College of Education.  These positions are also available in other colleges and departments around the UWG campus.

Departments seeking undergraduate students will normally post these positions at the Student Employment Office in Parker Hall.  You will have to visit the Student Employment Office to see what positions are currently available.

If you are seeking a graduate assistantship, we recommend you take your resume and fill out an application at the Graduate School office in Cobb Hall.

Many students work in computer labs around the UWG campus.  If you are interested in working in a computer lab you can upload your current resume to the campus computer labs website.  Computer lab directors often search this site to find potential candidates.  Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.  Computer lab positions are traditionally hired to start the first day of a semester.
