Ready to Work

RTW offer work opportunities both on and off campus through a work-study program. Participants gain work experience while earning extra income that will not reduce their K-TAP checks. The placement of work-study students in their fields of study with both private and non-profit employers helps prepare them for the workplace and often leads to full-time employment.

Participants gain work experience and job retention skills.
Participants earn extra income that will not reduce their K-TAP checks.
Employers have an opportunity to recruit Southeast students and graduates.

How can the Ready to Work program help you?
