UW program gives students a paycheck and practical experience

Working while in school no longer means serving food at the Union.

A new UW program helps students pay for school and improve their resumes.

It's called "RISE" - the Recruitment Initiative for Student Employees.

It started last summer and now, program coordinators say about 40 students are employed through RISE.

The program's focused on helping minority students get work within their field of study.

It also helps students with resume-writing and job interviewing skills.
