On-Campus Student Employment

Virtual Student Employment Fair

The 2020 July Virtual Student Employment Fair will be held
from Monday, July 20th through July 31st.

To participate in the July Virtual Student Employment Fair, submit the Fall Fairs Participation Form before or by Friday, July 10, 2020.  Later submissions to participate will be accepted but would prefer to have them by July 10th to insure that your position is posted on time and that your position and department is included on the list of participants that students will be viewing prior to the Fair.

How the Virtual Fair Will Work:
  • Student Employment will post positions in Handshake during the July Virtual Fair period of July 20th through July 31st. Candidate applications will be restricted to first year students with a Federal Work Study award for most positions.

  • Students will login to Handshake during the Virtual Fair period to upload their resume (and any other documents requested by employer).  External applications can be included into the posting as well. Students will then view and apply for posted positions.

  • Supervisors will receive applicant information and then proceed with the following steps:
  1. Review each applicants information,

  2. Contact applicants via phone or e-mail,

  3. Conduct phone or zoom interviews* and/or schedule in-person interviews on-campus**

  4. Notify students who applied to your position(s) that you don't intend to hire. See example below.

    • Example: Thank you for applying for the Office Assistant student employee position at Xavier University. After reviewing applicant resumes and availability for fall semester, we identified those who most closely matched our needs at this time. Even though you were not among those selected for further consideration, we appreciate your interest and wish you success in your search for a campus position.

  5. Once students are offered and accept a position, submit a Payroll Authorization Form to get the new hire process started.  Student Employment will notify you via e-mail to verify student's eligibility to begin work.  

*Students may be hired from just a phone or zoom interview if you choose. If you offer a position to one or more students through this Fair, you should go ahead and submit a Payroll Authorization Form to get the new hire process started remotely.  Remind the students that they will need to bring acceptable forms of original ID to campus with them for in-person I-9 verification as part of their new hire paperwork and that they can't start working until this has been completed.

**Note, if students will be coming to campus for an interview prior to move in day, there won't be space on campus for them to stay.
