UW-Madison Student Job Center

The Student Job Center is a resource for all students within the UW-Madison system who seek employment. Employment listings include both university positions and positions posted by a variety of employers in the Madison area. If you are a student looking for a Teaching or Project Assistantship (TA, PA), there are filters on the left-hand side of the page for these opportunities.

UW-Madison Jobs is an employment listings service managed by the Office of Human Resources at UW-Madison. Listings include both classified and unclassified positions within the university system.


La Follette students are also College of Letters & Sciences students; therefore, they may also utilize SuccessWorks. Included within SuccessWorks is the Government, Policy, International Affairs & (pre) Law careers page. Here you will find information about working for Federal, State, City, and County government agencies, for elected officials at the local, state, and national levels, and in Think Tanks and other policy-related organizations. 

Our current Career Services Coordinator, Marie Koko, created this page, but no longer manages or updates it.  Updated resources especially tailored to the needs of La Follette students can be found here.
