On-campus jobs & internships
Many IKNS students, whether domestic or on a Visa, hold on-campus, part time jobs to supplement their finances and to enrich their education with additional experience in one of Columbia's many exciting research and thought institutions, whether on our campuses in New York or worldwide. Below is a selection of websites to help you start your search.
Please note that the only fully centralized portal for on-campus jobs is the LionSHARE Database by the Center for Career Education. This database is aimed primarily at undergraduates and therefore not open to SPS students. However, there are a number of semi-centralized job repositories available to IKNS students:
How to get an on-campus job (webinar and further websites and contact information)
Teaching Assistant Jobs at SPS
Virtual global internships through Columbia's Global Centers
Federal Work Study Program (US citizens and US permanent residents only)
Misc. additional resources available to Columbia SPS students
We encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
