The Student Employment Program serves as a liaison between students and both on-campus and off-campus employers who are seeking to fill part-time employment needs.
Securing a part-time job gives the student an opportunity to gain skills that employers seek from college graduates. Some of those skills include computer, communication, time-management, and problem-solving skills, along with a strong work ethic.
In addition, it is reported that students who work between 10 and 15 hours per week attain higher academic achievement (U.S. News and World Report, June 2006).
Students: Please check out
Steps for Securing an On-Campus Student Employment Position for more information.
Supervisors: If your department or office has a student employment job opening, please let us know. Many IUP students seek on-campus Federal Work Study (FWS) or university employment (UE) positions throughout the semester. Please visit the Post a Job page and let us know about your position today!
Various employers within walking distance or on the Indigo bus route periodically advertise off-campus job opportunities.
Jobs that sound too good to be true should raise a red flag for any college student. Fake job postings abound in unsolicited e-mails sent to your student account and in online job listing sites.
IUP Career and Professional Development/Student Employment Program makes every effort to ensure the legitimacy of all off-campus job postings. Be wary of employers asking for a fee to apply/work for their organizations. Also watch for scams in which employers send checks to potential employees before any work is performed. Please report any concerns to the
Career and Professional Development Center and
University Police. Remember, as the potential hire, it is ultimately your responsibility to protect your financial and employment interests. When in doubt, check it out!
