The Student Employment Center provides several resources to students and faculty regarding student employment.
- The SEC operates the Student Job Board, a great resource for finding both work-study and non work-study jobs
- The America Reads / America Counts Program is a great opportunity for work-study employment
- Students may sign up for payroll in the University Human Resources Office, Room 3810, Beardshear Hall
- Student employee benefits and eligible services can be found on the University Human Resources webpage.
- Wage reimbursements can be processed to contracted off-campus non-profit agencies employing work-study students
- If departments wish to give pay raises to students working through the work-study program, they need to utilize the “Compensation Change” business process in Workday. This will route to the SEC staff for approval as long as the student remains in the Work-Study job profile
- Departments wishing to make corrections for payroll involving work-study students should notify Dawn Smith at email@example.com. The SEC must approve and issue the correction
- For Off-Campus Employers looking to post job advertisements to the Student Job Board, please fill out the Post a Job Form.
