Join Our Team

Learn new skills. Share your story. Collaborate with others.

The Office of Global Opportunities succeeds by working directly with the students we serve. Each year, we hire students for federal work study, student hourly, and Program to Aid Career Exploration (PACE) positions. These students play critical roles in our office, from advising peers on finding global experiences to shaping our marketing and promotion strategies and more. Working with our office gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, share your story, and collaborate with others.

Special note: So many of our students have had their global experiences impacted by the emergence and spread of COVID-19. Even if you’ve had a global experience cut short or canceled, we encourage you to apply for these positions. You have developed and are developing skills such as flexibility, tolerance for ambiguity, and communication that are critical to positions in our office.
