  • Supervisors seeking to fill positions must first ensure that they have a current job description on file with Student Employment.
  • If Student Employment does not have a current job description on file, a description must be submitted to be properly classified. Position Description Form
  • Positions are classified and approved by Student Employment. Submit the detailed position description to Student Employment including the duties, responsibilities, knowledge, skills required, and the amount of supervision the student employee will receive.
  • The position must be advertised. Supervisors must complete a Student Employment Job Posting Form, and submit the form to Student Employment. Student Employment positions are advertised via eRecruiting.
  • Student Employment operates a self-referral system. Students may contact hiring officials directly to apply for positions that are advertised.

  • If the student has already worked on campus in the Student Employment Program, he or she must complete and submit the following forms:
    • If returning to the same position and department use the Payroll Authorization Form.
    • If hired in new department or position title has changed use the Payroll Authorization Form.

It is essential that these forms are processed in Student Employment before the student begins to work. Student employees must submit hiring paperwork to Student Employment between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m Monday-Friday.
