Current Vacant Positions

There are two ways to look for an on-campus job:


  1. Choose Academic Year Jobs or Summer Jobs.
  2. Read the postings.
  3. To apply, do what the posting tells you to do! (sample)

 In Person

Approach departments you would like to work for even if they do not have a job posting.  Here's how:

  1. Go to the building where you would like to work.
  2. Ask for the person who hires student employees.
  3. Tell this person you would like to work for their department.
  4. Listen to what they have to say and do it.

Contact departments directly to pursue a job.
Send resumes, applications or requests for more information directly to the department in which you are interested in working. 

Paperwork must be completed prior to beginning work.
Social Security Cards must be the actual cardAll newly hired student employees must first stop by Student Employment Services, Bovee University Center 121, to fill out tax forms and I-9 paperwork prior to beginning any work on campus. 

Two forms of ID may be needed to complete the paperwork for payroll purposes. The most commonly seen are the CentralCard and an actual Social Security Card (no copies accepted.) 

Following completion of new hire paperwork, student employees receive the Hire Authorization Card, aka the "red card."
