CSU Pueblo Works

CSU Pueblo Works connects students’ academic studies and career path to employment opportunities, and so much more.

Students gain exposure to skill-development opportunities that are competitive and build a portfolio to showcase their skills and experience. They take advantage of opportunities for relevant paid work that assists with both educational and living expenses, while they gain hands-on experience.

CSU Pueblo Works is for you if any of the following applies:

  • You want a framework to help you stand out in the job market
  • You want to learn how to showcase your course work on your resume/CV
  • You want to build a portfolio to support your job interviews and applications
  • You are seeking employment on or off campus
  • You already have an off campus job

Receiving the work-study stipend saved me this last semester and eased so much stress out of my life.

Without the work study stipend, I would not be where I am right now. I was not stressed about money and was able to focus on my student teaching. I know some university students still live with their parents or are supported financially in other ways, but for those who support themselves independently and live on their own, working less than 20 hours a week is not enough to support all of the financial needs I have. I am incredibly grateful I was one of the students who benefited positively from this work-study position. I hope future students can have the same opportunity I had."
