On-Campus Part-Time Jobs
As a student a part-time job gives you the opportunity to gain valuable skills as well as earn a paycheck. A part-time job may be unrelated to your major, but you will learn transferable skills desired by employers, including time management, communication, teamwork, leadership and problem solving.
Find a Job
GWork, our online job listing system, is an excellent resource to find on-campus part-time employment. Individual campus departments are often looking for student assistants to work in their office.
You can also ask departments or offices that interest you if they have part-time job openings.
Complete Your Employment Paperwork
When you find an on-campus part-time position you’ll need to complete the appropriate employment paperwork. This includes federal (W4) and local (DC-4 or local state) tax forms and the Employment Eligibility Verification Form (I-9). These forms can be found in the appropriate Student Employment forms packet.
To complete an I-9, visit our office and present the proper forms of identification to a Student Employment staff member. Once the department that wishes to hire you submits their hire request, an email will be sent to you with instructions on completing the online I9 form.
You are not allowed to report to work until all hiring paperwork has been submitted and processed.
