In November, The University of Texas at Austin will launch Workday, a new software system for human resources and payroll. In preparation for Workday, Work-Study sites and forms will be undergoing changes. Hire a Work-Study (HAWS) will be retired but Hire A Longhorn (HAL) will continue as the official job bank for student employment at the University.
Work-Study is a need-based form of financial aid in which you work a part-time job to earn money for your educational expenses. If you’re interested in Work-Study, make sure to mark “yes” to the question on the FAFSA that asks if you’re interested in student employment.
Once you have been awarded Work-Study as part of your financial aid package, it is up to you to find an approved job. Employment opportunities are available on and off campus, but keep in mind that the job must be classified as a Work-Study position. Work-Study job listings can be found on Hire a Longhorn.

Other Student Employment
Students looking for part-time or seasonal work may search the job openings listed on Hire a Longhorn.
An internship is a great way to gain real-world work experience and often provides a competitive edge in today’s job market. For information about searching for internship opportunities, please contact the appropriate campus career center.
For students who are interested in giving back to the community through a volunteer/unpaid work opportunity, we recommend contacting the Longhorn Center for Community Engagement. The center serves as UT Austin’s central resource for those interested in volunteerism and service-learning throughout the UT and Austin communities.
We strongly discourage full-time students from seeking full-time employment. Once you have graduated from the university, HireUTexas is a great place to search for your first career-oriented employment opportunity.
