FUTURE STUDENT INFO - CORPORATE WORK STUDY
WHEN DO I GO TO WORK?
All Providence Cristo Rey High School students go to work one day a week during the school year.
Seniors work on Mondays, Juniors work on Tuesdays, Sophomores work on Wednesdays, and Freshmen work on Thursdays. Students spend the day at their work site. Exact arrival and departure times depend on the location of their work site.
HOW WILL I GET TO WORK?
We provide bus transportation to and from your work site.
WHAT KIND OF JOB WILL I HAVE?
We partner with more than 80 different companies that are in a wide range of fields. We have students that work at hospitals, law firms, universities, tech companies, engineering companies, realty firms, accounting firms, nonprofits, pharmaceutical companies, investment firms, and more.
HOW DO I GET PLACED AT A JOB?
At the end of C.O.R.E. (Corporate Office Readiness & Enrichment) Training, students will be evaluated on their skills, attitude, leadership, and professionalism during training. Their job placement will be determined based on this criteria as well as the company's needs.
WHAT KIND OF WORK WILL I DO?
All Corporate Work Study jobs are professional, entry-level jobs. Some common first-year duties are answering phones, greeting visitors, filing, scanning, data entry, and assisting with events. Every job will help you with your communication, networking, organizational, and time management skills.
Some of our older students do very specific work at their work study site, like working on the IT Helpdesk rebuilding reimaging computers for Defenders, or working on an important drought-related project for the State of California with Delta Faucet.
DO I GET PAID?
The money that you earn from your normal hours at your Corporate Work Study site goes towards your school tuition. This is how we keep costs very low for your family. Some companies invite their students to work during school breaks. When you work during school breaks and do not need to make up a missed work day, the money you earn goes directly to you!
