Get the Edge!

Whether the job market is tight or not, it's never an easy transition from being a student to a work-a-day employee. But you can gain an edge over your colleagues by getting valuable experience before you complete that degree.

The Department of Water Resources' Student Employment Program is designed to acquaint students with the work and employment opportunities that exist within the Department. You can gain on-the-job training in your chosen academic field if you're enrolled in high school, college, university, or any recognized school of learning.

College students with a declared major may be hired as Student Assistants or Graduate Student Assistants, to work in learning capacities and assist departmental staff with technical or administrative duties, in such fields as:

• Accounting
• Biology
• Business Administration
• Civil Engineering
• Chemistry
• Communications
• Computer Engineering
• Computer Science
• Electrical Engineering
• Environmental Science
• Environmental Studies
• Geography
• Geology
• Graphic Art

  • Youth Aids and Student Assistants must carry a minimum of 9 semester or 8 quarter units per academic term.
  • Graduate Student Assistants must carry a minimum of 6 semester or 4 quarter units.
