Clayton State offers a number of campus employment opportunities for students to help pay their expenses, make a little jingle for their pockets, and to develop transferable work skills.
Work Study – The Federal Work-Study program provides part-time jobs to students with financial aid eligibility. Your student should check with the Office of Financial Aid to see if s/he qualifies. http://www.clayton.edu/financial-aid/Work-Study
Student Assistants – Many offices on campus employ students to help with their daily operations. To find out current openings, your student should check the Laker Career Zone in Career Services. https://clayton-csm.symplicity.com/students/?signin_tab=0
Orientation Leaders - The Laker Orientation Leader, LOL, is a campus leadership position where students have the opportunity to work closely with incoming freshman, transfer, non-traditional students, and their families to assist them with their transition to Clayton State University. To be an Orientation Leader, students must have a minimum 2.6 GPA, be in good standing with the university, possess interest in a leadership position, desire to work with new students, and be open-minded and creative. Students who are interested in becoming Orientation Leaders may apply at: http://www.clayton.edu/orientation/New-Student/LOL
Resident Assistants (RAs) – Being a Resident Assistant at Laker Hall or Laker Village is much more than an opportunity to help pay for college expenses. Through a 10 week training period then working as an RA, your student will hone their leadership skills and develop transferable skills that will be needed in their future career paths. Basic requirements for RA’s are a 2.5 cumulative GPA and be in good conduct standing, have 24 or more credit hours, and have lived in campus housing for a minimum of one year.
