Student Employment

JST offers many employment opportunities on our campus in Berkeley. All JST students are eligible to apply for these positions, which are a great source of funding and also provide professional training and hands-on experience that contributes to their overall formation. Students have the opportunity to work up to 19 hours a week and are paid at least $16.00 per hour. Students that work 19 hours per week throughout the academic year would earn approximately $11,000.
