Although you may be posting a Work Study positions you must select “No” when asked if this is a work-study position. Career and Professional Success cannot store or share student work-study eligibility in Handshake. Because of this, all student applicants will appear to “not meet preferences” if you choose “Yes”.

To confirm work-study eligibility, we suggest reaching out to the UNH Manchester Financial Aid office before conducting interviews to make sure the student is work-study eligible.  You may also include language like this in your posting: “Interview eligibility is contingent upon confirmation from Financial Aid that you are work study eligible”
