Campus and Community Employment

We believe an on-campus or community part-time job is an excellent opportunity for you to develop both personally and professionally outside of the classroom. You make important contributions to the University and community while gaining life-long skills. Earning some income doesn't hurt either, of course.

Campus Jobs

All students may apply for any part-time, University wide positions (even if you already have a work-study position). Jobs range from reception desk staff members and campus tour guides to learning center coaches and retail workers. On average, 2,000 to 2,500 students are employed across campus each year.

Nearly every department—academic and administrative—employs students. Many post their open positions on Handshake, but some will post in on their own website - see Additional On-Campus Job Opportunities.

Work-Study Program

If you have "work-study" listed as part of your financial aid package, you are eligible to participate in our work-study program and can apply for all work-study positions through Handshake. For more information, please click here: work-study program.

Community Jobs

Employment opportunities are available in the local community - from retail to restaurant, and everything in between. Community businesses are able to use Handshake to advertise and post their job opportunities.
