Get Trained: College employees who oversee and/or coordinate student workers must familiarize themselves with the Student Employment Guidelines.

Please contact the Student Employment Manager with questions, or to request training.
Advertise: All student job openings should be posted through the Career Center’s Handshake system. If you require access to Handshake, please be in touch with the Student Employment Manager. Here’s a handy tutorial for posting and editing jobs in Handshake.
