After you have accepted work study on your financial aid award letter, the Financial Aid Office will send an email to your PCC email account with information about your work study funds. Only students that have been awarded work study should complete the following steps.

  1. Create your account

    To apply for work study jobs, you'll use the Career Connections online job posting system. If you haven't registered with this site before, you will need to create an account. It takes around 24 hours for your account to become active - you'll receive an email when your account is ready.

  2. Upload your resume

    Write your resume and upload it to Career Connections. See resume guidelines and samples for tips on how to write a resume. To upload your resume in Career Connections, go to the "My Documents" page under the My Account tab, find "Resumes" and select "Add." Follow the instructions to upload your resume. After uploading a resume, go on to Step 2: Apply for a position.
