Career and Work Ready (CWR) BEST Program: Student Employment @ BC

Career and Work Ready (CWR) BEST Program

"Bloomfield Educates Students for Tomorrow through Career Experiences Today!"


The Career and Work Ready (CWR) BEST Program at Bloomfield College includes the Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program, which is a program based on financial need and for which the federal government appropriates funds.  Eligibility is determined by filing the FAFSA and awarded to students by the Office of Student Financial Services.  This program provides need-based funding for students to earn money while working part-time at an approved on- or off-campus (non-profit organization) site.


In addition, Bloomfield College is committed to student employment and provides supplemental funding for additional part-time jobs through the BC Student Employment Program, which provides funding for students not eligible for Federal Work-Study.


Through the Career and Work Ready (CWR) BEST Program, Federal Work-Study (FWS) and BC Student Employees (SE) work part-time while gaining career-related experience.  “What sets Bloomfield College’s program apart from others is that we view it as a career development program. Our goal is to help students achieve both professional and personal development." 


Student employees complete engaging assignments, play an important role at the College, and receive direction from supevisors commited to helping students achieve both personal and professional success. As a result, our student employees not only “earn”, but also “learn and serve.”
