How Can Supervisors Post Student Assistant Positions?

A new Policy has been implemented with the Human Resources Student Employment department and the Career Center. It is mandatory for all departments hiring student assistants to post job openings through the Career Center. Please make sure to remove any links or any postings that advertise job offers and place them properly through the Career Center. This includes the removal of any postings of open student assistant positions that have been placed on various bulletin boards, video screens or department offices around the campus. This is a mandatory requirement for all department vacancies.

After departments post student assistant job announcements under web-based job board, department can promote job posting ID# with Career Center link to inform students about job posting in the departments.

Different processes are required if hiring student(s) under UEC, Academic Personnel and/or Student Union.
