Corporate Work Study Program

The Corporate Work Study Program is an innovative model of education that gives students a college-preparatory education while earning work experience in a corporate setting.

How it Works

Four students rotate through the week to fill the position full-time. Each student has an assigned day on which he or she works. On Friday, the four students rotate to share the fifth day of the week. In each four-week span, each student will have one week in which he or she works two days. Student schedules are created so that students never miss a class.
Students are employees of the Corporate Work Study Program, not the job partners. Partners pay a flat fee to the Corporate Work Study Program for one full-time Corporate Work Study Team. The Corporate Work Study Program handles all payroll, W-4, I-9, and Worker’s Compensation paperwork, as well as all routine employer issues. The Corporate Work Study Program is separately incorporated, functioning as a temporary employment agency within Cristo Rey San Diego.
