Student Worker Opportunities
Student Workers and Student Professional Workers
The Student Worker Program is designed to provide participants with on-the-job training/experience while encouraging the participants to obtain their educational degree or professional certification.
The primary purpose of this program is to provide meaningful work experience to serious students, to develop a strong work ethic and an understanding of business practices to help them prepare for full-time professional work and to assist them in obtaining a degree or certification. In addition, it is expected that serious students develop and maintain a deliberate plan to achieve measurable academic progress in the pursuit of a degree in a declared field. Upon completion of their education, student workers and student professional workers are encouraged to apply for positions with the County of Los Angeles and become permanent County employees.
