If you’re an undergraduate with financial aid and you decide to work as part of your self-help component, this is where to find a student job. It’s also the right place to start if you’re a graduate student or an undergraduate without financial aid, but you still want to get a job to help pay your expenses.
SFS doesn’t earmark jobs for any students. MIT has an open job market, which means that any student, regardless of financial need, has the opportunity to get any job on campus for which he or she is qualified. However, we have more than enough positions available for all the students who want work.
Sign up for one of our on-call lists if you’re a student who’s interested in tutoring, child care, data entry and other jobs of this type. Employers looking for students to work in these areas can check the lists and contact students directly.
Federal Work-Study is a need-based federal program that can fund a portion of a student's salary. If you have a Federal Work-Study eligibility amount listed in your financial aid statement (which you can check any time on WebSIS), you may earn up to that amount in an off-campus community service job, in addition to or instead of working on campus. Earnings from work-study jobs may only be used to pay for educational expenses. If you earn your entire allotted work-study amount, you may continue to work in an on-campus job only.

Anyone who wants to work at MIT must complete an I-9 form and submit it (in person) in Room 11-120. When you have the right documentation with you, it takes very little time. And it needs to be done only once, as long as you don't take a semester off.
