Student part-time employment

In Announcements, by , on January 27th, 2016

I hope your new year is off to a wonderful start.  As we kick off the spring semester, many students are eager to find part-time employment (non-work study) positions on campus. Part-time, temporary employment on campus gives students who are not eligible for the work-study program the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and earn money for college expenses.  In addition, these positions give students the flexibility to work around their busy class schedules.

Part-time, temporary employment may include positions such as interim support staff, research assistants, camp counselors, and event-specific staff.  If you are looking to hire a student as a temporary employee, we would like to encourage you to use our Get Hired Portal to post all temporary, part-time employment opportunities.  Using our Get Hired Portal not only makes the job search process easier for students, it provides equal opportunity for all qualified students to apply to a variety of on-campus opportunities.  In addition, it provides you with a pool of applicants to interview to help ensure you hire the best candidate for the job.

Listed below are the steps for creating your Get Hired Portal log-in and the process for posting an opening.

  1. Complete the “Request for Temporary Employment” form to receive approval for posting the position.  The form is available in My NU under Hiring and Compliance in the Human Resource section.
