Earn While You Learn – at Kishwaukee College.

Earn While You Learn

Prepare for your future and earn while you learn at Kishwaukee College. We partner with local businesses to provide education and practical work experience. Whether a student worker, intern, apprentice or WIOA participant, you can gain valuable work experience, resume building items, excellent references, and earn money — all while being a student.

On-campus jobs 

There are nearly 130 student employee positions on campus annually. Students work in offices, labs and shops as assistants and additional help. And Kish is committed to supporting you as a student. Positions on campus offer flexibility to work around your class schedule and academic requirements! Some offices on campus require set hours of work. See individual job descriptions for requirements.

To see open positions or apply, visit Student Employment.


Internships are workplace experiences in your intended field of study. Most internships are offered off-campus, though there are some internship opportunities in offices on campus. 

Because employers that offer internships know they are hiring a student, the experience can be a combination of a paid position and learning on the job.

Credit internships are supervised by appointed faculty members and certain criteria must be met to receive credit. 

Please contact Career Services or your instructor if you are interested in an internship and need assistance with placement.

Apprentice Programs

Kish is a proud participant of the Customized Apprenticeship Programming-Information Technology (CAP-IT) initiative, which works to expand work opportunities for students in the IT field. The CAP-IT program works directly with local employers to find students career opportunities based on their skillset. Reach out to Career Services for more information.

On-the-Job Training

We offer on-the-job training with funding provided through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA partially reimburses businesses for the costs of training and onboarding newly hired employees who will learn specialized skills necessary for their job. 

Learn more about WIOA for Youth (ages 16 – 24) or WIOA through the Illinois workNet Center.
