Before getting a job on campus, there are a few steps that you must take in order to obtain a position.
Ensure that you are currently registered for 12 credit hours or more. You cannot be a student worker if you are not currently a student. For any additional restrictions, see the section on Registration Requirements.
Find a position with a place on campus. For more information on how to do this, see the section below on Finding an on Campus Employer.
Once you have received an offer from an employer, come to the Student Employment Office to obtain your Employment Eligibility Card. Be sure to read the section on SEO Employement Eligibility Card Requirements before coming to the office.
You need to be registered for classes before you can apply for the SEO Employment Eligibility Card - you can't be a student worker if you are not a student!
Make sure you are registered for at least 12 credit hours - If you don't know if you are registered, contact the Registrar's at 475-2821 or your academic advisor or staff person from the department you are majoring in.
There are many ways you can get a job:
Refer to On-Campus Job Postings or Off-Campus Job Postings on our SEO Website - we update them daily. Fall quarter positions are normally posted around mid-August. Follow the instructions for each posting as to how to apply.
Ask around in the department you are majoring in such as your academic advisor, professors, departmental staff - not all departments post with SEO.
Several departments have openings fairly often such as Food Service, Wallace Library, NTID Notetaking, or Maintenance - go to the department or restaurant/cafeteria and ask for the supervisor. Remember to bring a resume!
Students who receive a job offer must complete the employment verification process, in person, at the Student Employment Office.
To get your SEO Employment Eligibility Card you need to:
Bring a filled out Employment Verification Form to our office in the University Services Center.
Fill out an I-9 form - US federal form for employment eligibility verification.
Needed for the I-9 form is original documentation to prove who you are and that you can work in the United States - a list of acceptable documents can be found here. You must bring one document from List A or one document from List B and List C. All documents must be original. Copies, faxes, or scanned documents cannot be accepted.
NOTE: International students will be required to submit a valid F1 or J1 Visa.
